Waive Pseudo (PW)


This exception is typically used when a student has achieved some level of competency that is not course-specific (e.g., through life experience, proficiency testing, etc.), or when completing an advisor sign-off sub-requirement.

This exception is similar to “Waive Course,” “Waive Requirement,” and “Requirement Complete” exceptions.


The Mathematics major in the College of Arts and Sciences requires students to see an advisor to obtain final approval of the major. In order for the major to go complete on the audit, the advisor must complete a waive pseudo exception on the final sub-requirement in the major.
