Q:A course did not transfer in as an equivalent Business course at MSU,Mankato

If you feel the content of a course you transferred in should be equivalent to that of a Business course at MSU, but it did not transfer in on your DARS as an equivalent, you must bring the course description/syllabus to the Chair of that Department. (Just because a class has the same name/title does not mean it is equivalent.) The Department Chair will determine if they will substitute the course or not. (Substitutions do not eliminate the need for a prerequisite override if the course you are transferring in is a prerequisite for a course you are trying to register for. You will still get the prerequisite error and will need to fill out the Prerequisite Override Form-see above)
