Waive or Challenge a Course

As YSN admits students of high caliber, some will already have had the course work or experience in some of the areas we offer. Under the principle that students should have the opportunity to build upon their previous experience and that essentially repeating already mastered work is not educationally sound, the Waive or Challenge a Course procedure was developed and approved by the Executive Committee in September of 1975.
