Administrative Resources for Faculty or Staff

Forms for use by Departmental Faculty or Staff

UB DARS Individual Change Form - This form is used by departmental personnel only to waive or substitute courses/requirements for an individual student's UB DARS Report.


  • When a student takes a cross-listed APY course, but is registered for it under a department other than Anthropology
  • When a course has been petitioned and approved to satisfy a departmental requirement
  • When an APY major uses a course other than APY 494 to satisfy their Senior Seminar requirement
  • To indicate what course the student has chosen to satisfy the Practicum requirement.

The Undergraduate secretary must address the "MAJOR section" of this form, indicating: the UB course or Requirement; where the course was taken; the semester/year it was taken; and the name/number of the course. (Examples: APY 106, 107, 108; Area Studies; Theoretical/Problem Oriented; Senior Seminar; Practicum; or an Elective)

Note: If the student is a Minor, this form is not needed. However, if a Minor later applies to become a Major in full status, this form becomes applicable. It would be used for any of the courses the Minor had taken that would have warranted this form had they been accepted as a Major at the start of their program of study in the Department of Anthropology.

Universal Grade Change Form - This form is for the use of faculty only. UB mandates that the only acceptable reason for a grade change is that student's academic record indicates that the submitted grade had been inaccurately recorded because of clerical error.
