JD/MSA Waiver Exams

Waiver exams are available for the following foundation course in the JD/MSA program:

  • 6200:601 Financial Accounting
  • 6400:602 Managerial Finance

They are provided as a courtesy to graduate students admitted to our programs and give students an opportunity to document their knowledge of the basic areas within the foundation-level courses. They are offered at various times throughout the year.
