Master of Integrated Innovation for Products & Services (MIIPS)
Welcome, MIIPS students!
Refer to this page to find information about academic policies, forms, internship requirements, advising resources and spaces on campus. These resources and guidelines are relevant and important to your success as a MIIPS student.
Curriculum Plans & Registration
Students can plan their schedule and register for courses in SIO. It is important students meet with their advisor before registering for the upcoming semester. Please refer to the CMU Academic Calendar for important registration dates.
Students can request a course overload after completing their first semester with a 3.75 GPA or higher.
Course Waiver Requests
To request a waiver of a required course, students need to submit a written (email) request to their academic advisor. Specific courses may have different processes for successfully applying for a waiver. Students need to document three years of relevant professional experience and academic courses covering class specifics to request a waiver from a course. Along with these requirements, some faculty members may require an interview or exam as part of the course waiver process.
Requests will be approved or denied after review from the academic advisor, program director, and/or course faculty. Students in the MIIPS program can request to waive at most 12 units of required courses. This limit is not meant to be restrictive—rather they exist to ensure all students take advantage of the program curriculums as designed and developed.
