Students wishing to enrol in SUSTAIN 3S03 or SUSTAIN 4S06 A/B, but who do not meet the prerequisites, are encouraged to request permission of the course instructor. The request is the initial step and should be submitted by August 1st to ensure time for your request to be processed. You may be asked to take part in a short phone interview to address any outstanding questions. You will be contacted once your application has been reviewed. If approved, you will be able to register on Mosaic within ~3 business days.
It should be noted that permission is not guaranteed. We will only approve those students who we feel are appropriately prepared to help ensure the learning experiences are positive and truly educative.
