Petitions for Course Substitutions or Exemptions


The CoTE petition form may be used to request an exception to or substitution for an educator preparation program requirement.  Please note that most requirements are required by Illinois State Board of Education rule or Illinois law and cannot be waived.  To request the use of a course taken from a different institution to meet a required licensure course, a copy of the proposed course syllabus should be attached to the petition.
