Academic Policy Petition
A student who believes there is an extenuating circumstance warranting an academic petition to policy must provide a rationale addressing the extenuating circumstance. Incomplete rationales will not be approved and submitting a petition does not guarantee approval. A program’s curricular requirements do not require a formal petition unless the student wishes to appeal the department’s decision. Academic Petition forms are located on the Registrar’s SharePoint site.
Appeal of Academic Policy Decision
A decision that is denied by the Dean may be appealed to the Committee on Academic Standing and Degrees within ten (10) business days of the outcome. An appeal must include additional arguments to show a reason for the Dean’s decision to be appealed. The outcome from the Committee on Academic Standing and Degrees is final.
