  • The Student Petition of Academic Policy will be electronically routed to your academic advisor, instructor and the chairperson of the department offering the course for review and recommended decision.
  • Once all recommended decisions are made, the request will be reviewed by the Student Petition of Academic Policy Committee
  • You will receive notification of the outcome via email.

Required Signatures

  • The instructor may recommend an action or write an explanation of the applicable circumstances but does not have final approval/disapproval authority.
