UT course with equivalent credit

This section required if you chose "Took a UT course with equivalent credit" or "Other"

Please explain your request:

*What is the course number of the equivalent course?
For your reference, commonly substituted courses: EE 312 = CS 312; EE 422C = CS 314; EE 306 + 316 = CS 429; EE 360C = CS 331 (Algorithms & Complexity)

*What semester and year did you take this equivalent course?

*What grade did you receive in this equivalent course? (Enter A,B,C,D and/or +,-)

Transfer course with equivalent credit

This section required if you chose took a transfer course with equivalent

*Where did you take the transferred equivalent course?

*What is the course number of the transferred equivalent course?

*What semester did you take this equivalent course?

*Have you finished the transfer requirements?
(i.e. Have you met with your advisor, submitted your syllabi and had your advisor submit a petition for this course to count?)
Yes No

If you have not already met with your advisor, you need to make an appointment by calling the front desk (512) 471-9509.

We can still do a prerequisite waiver for you if it is close to registration, but you will need to use your judgement during the first 12 class days of whether you have the prerequisite knowledge required for the course.

I understand that I must make an appointment, email my advisor my syllabus, and have a petition submitted on my behalf.

Please indicate your assigned advisor whom you will be emailing your syllabus to. Find your assigned advisor.

If you do not have an advisor assignment on the CNS page, you may email under-info@cs.utexas.edu

Previous version of the prerequisite

This section required if you chose took a previous version of the prerequisite

*What previous version of the prerequisite did you take?
For your reference, older versions transfer as such: CS 305J or CS 307 = CS 312; CS 315 = CS 314; EE 316 + CS 310 = CS 429

*What semester did you take this equivalent course?
(ex. Fall 2012)

Final Agreement

I am asking the Department of Computer Science to waive a prerequisite for a CS course. I understand that the Department of Computer Science is advising me not to take the CS course without the prerequisite(s). I understand that if I drop the course within the first 12 class days (during fall/spring) or within the first 4 class days (during summer), it will not count against the CS repeat policy. But if I drop the course after this day, it will count against the CS repeat policy.

*If you agree to this, please type your full name as your signature.
