Integrative Studies Substitute Courses and Policy

Substitutions for Integrative Studies (INST) requirements are permitted subject to the following conditions:

  1. A substitution must appear on the list of approved alternate courses shown below.
  2. No more than two substitutions are permitted.
  3. While up to two substitutions are permitted, only one of them may be used to fulfill both an INST requirement and a requirement in the student’s major or minor. In other words, only one substitute course may be double-counted.

The Degree Audit program will automatically count any of the approved substitutes as satisfying INST requirements.
