Course Substitution Requests

The Office of Student Disability Services has provided a process for students with documented disabilities who register with the office to seek a course substitution as a disability-based accommodation for UMBC’s general education graduation requirements in mathematics or the L201 foreign language when the student’s disability creates a barrier to participation.

The steps for requesting a substitution and the supporting disability documentation required are outlined for each substitution type in our website menu; one for math and one for foreign language. All substitution requests will be considered on a case by case basis and will include an interactive discussion with SDS staff, review of history and transcripts, and an evaluation process of the barriers to learning that the student and medical documentation present. Accommodation approval will be determined by the disability services professional staff substitution review team.
