Permanent Course Exclusions:

A course may be excluded from the evaluation process for every future semester by completing the Permanent Course Exclusion Form and sending it to Institutional Research at Box 5167.  These forms are due back to IR by the 3rd week of classes so that short classes can be excluded on time.  The Course Id, Subject Area, and Catalog Nbr are needed for each course that will be excluded.  The Permanent Course Exclusion can be found at http://www.usm.edu/institutional-research, under Forms and Resources. 

Note: The Course Id is located on the Schedule of Classes panel.
