Negotiate Competence Request Form

If you are nearing the end of your program, you may request to take a competency not offered in a course. This is called 'negotiating a competency.' Requests are reviewed by SNL's Exceptions Committee and must be approved by your faculty mentor and the course instructor. The negotiated competency must be relevant to the subject matter of the course and fall within the instructor’s area of expertise. You may negotiate only one competency per course but should temporarily register for a competency already offered in the course to reserve a space in the class. You should submit the request to negotiate a competency as soon as registration for the quarter begins. Since this process may take up to four weeks, no request will be accepted after the end of the 4th week of the quarter. Competencies in travel courses are negotiated directly with the instructor of the course and do not require this form. Focus area competencies cannot be negotiated.

 

If you wish to drop a competency for which you are already registered, please list it below. 

 

If the negotiated competency is an FX, please describe below how the course relates to your Focus Area Title.
