Course Substitution Requests

All WCU students are encouraged to arm themselves with knowledge of the academic requirements and policies that they’ll encounter and utilize in their time at the university. They should consult their Undergraduate Catalog, or Graduate Catalog, often and familiarize themselves with the WCU General Education Program.

Dr. Cheryl Neale-McFall, the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs (Interim), oversees the approval of all Course Substitution Request Forms .

Dismissal Appeals

The Associate Provost for Academic Affairs also hears all dismissal appeals. Students who wish to appeal must utilize the Dismissal Appeal Form to explain the reason for their academic difficulty, as well as their plan to return to good academic standing, if Dr. Neale-McFall allows them to stay on for a semester of extended probation. The appeal process is an informal one, and appeals should be submitted via email. For more information on academic dismissal or probation, please refer to our Probation and Dismissal page.
