Substitution / Pre-Approval Policy
Mechanical Engineering Department
Course Substitution/Pre-Approval Policy
Effective May 19, 2014, the Mechanical Engineering Department at CSUN only accepts course substitution requests from matriculated students (those enrolled in a CSUN degree program) who must repeat a course after their third attempt at CSUN, or in cases where the student has exhausted his/her grade forgiveness and averaging units.
Mechanical Engineering majors may take lower division, articulated courses at colleges offering such courses without the need for pre-approval. Course substitution forms are not required for articulated courses as these classes will be automatically incorporated into the student's record after an official transcript is provided to and processed by the Office of Admissions and Records. For a list of articulated courses, visit www.assist.org.
This policy supersedes the College of Engineering and Computer Science pre-approval requirement.
