Changing Planned Courses
If you take classes other than the ones listed on your approved candidacy form, you must file a Course Substitution Form (also known as the Request for Course Substitution in Master’s Degree Program [PDF]). If you are only changing the semester that you take the course, not the actual course, it is not necessary to submit the form.
Note: Students are to upload this form to the substitution form dropbox in the Canvas iSchool Advising and Administration site — do not send this form directly to GAPE.
The School of Information will download your Course Substitution Form from Canvas, obtain necessary signatures, and forward it to Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations (GAPE). You will not receive official approval notification from GAPE. The substitution form will be placed in your file awaiting graduation.
How to Fill Out:
- Open the Request for Course Substitution in Master’s Degree Program [PDF] form.
- Do a FILE/SAVE AS to your computer desktop, and rename as follows: [YOURLASTNAME_YOURFIRSTNAME_STUDENTIDNUMBER-sub].pdf.
- Open this file from your desktop and, using Adobe Reader, TYPE directly into the form you see displayed on your computer screen.
- SAVE to your desktop/your computer.
How to Submit:
In Canvas, go to the iSchool Advising and Administration site under Courses. Click on the link for Course Substitutions. On the right, you will see a link to upload submissions.
