Exception Instruction


Degree Programs

Includes all majors that have been set up for the college.

  • Each degree program begins with the college code:
    A=Agriculture College
    C=Design College
    E=Engineering College
    H=Human Sciences College
    M=Business College
    S=LAS College
    V=Vet Med College
  • At the end of each major is a letter representing the degree earned:
    A=BA (bachelor of arts) degree
    B=BS (bachelor of science) degree
    L=BLS (bachelor of liberal studies) degree
    M=BM (bachelor of music) degree
    H=BARCH (bachelor of architecture) degree
    F=BFA (bachelor of fine arts) degree
    Blank= non-degree seeking major
  • Each degree program is divided into a number of requirements.
  • Each requirement is divided into a number of subrequirements (subgroups).
  • Each subgroup will list course and/or credits needed for this area to show complete (+).

When all subgroups have been completed (+), the requirement will show OK. If there is at least one subgroup not complete (-) the requirement will show as NO.

Once a requirement is showing OK, the subgroups will reflect courses taken with term and grade. Any wording such as 'Complete 6.0 crs from ...' will disappear.


This wording appears at the top of a requirement, not a subgroup; indicates the student is currently enrolled in these courses.


This wording shows in a subgroup, usually within the electives area and indicates credits earned in this subgroup. In this area, electives and not applied are a subgroup.


Under Support Tables a green smiley face icon appears called Exception Rules. The coding is entered in this area to make forces, subs, waives, etc. for individual students' records. Each student record has a place where the green face shows with the word 'exceptions'.

Other Information


Cross Listed Courses

It is agreed throughout the university that all cross listed courses may be used interchangeably throughout the audits.

65-Credit Cutback

Count 65 credits in the total hours, but let all transfer work courses fall in requirements wherever they fit. Another way to think of this is that course credits are limited to 65, but course content is not.

GPA Calculation

The current perm rec (ADIN) GPA rounds up. Be aware, the DARS GPA does not round up to the next digit. As a result, the DARS GPA value may be .01 less than perm rec GPA during the test phase of DARS. We expect to have one GPA when DARS testing is complete.
