Waiver Policy

The MPA degree consists of 43 total credit hours. However, we will waive up to four MPA core courses (12 credit hours) if you complete equivalent coursework before transitioning to graduate status. Upper-level courses in the Business Economics Option Program will qualify for MPA course waivers.

Your academic advisor will approve any waivers and substitutions during new student advising in the summer.
