There are two different scenarios when you might need to complete a course substitution:

  1. Applying a transferred course to your declared program.
  2. Applying for another BSU course as a substitute for a required course.


  1. Begin the conversation with your Academic Advisor. To find out who your advisor is and what they do, visit the Academic Advising webpage.
  2. Complete the Course Substitution Form. You will need to get your advisor’s signature and the signature of the department chair.
  3. The form should then be submitted to the Records & Registration Office and will be processed in 1-2 weeks.
  4. After the form is processed, you will receive a notification and your Degree Audit Report will reflect the changes.
