Petition for Exception to Policy

Students have the option of requesting an exception to undergraduate academic policy via this form, which gets reviewed by an associate dean.

The entire process – from submission to decision – may take up to two weeks. Students should discuss this option with their assigned academic department faculty/staff advisor or a Undergraduate College Office academic advisor prior to submitting a request.

Application for Petition for Exception to Policy

Most policy exceptions pertain to the Liberal Studies Program (e.g., course substitutions, requirement waivers). The preferred route for such exception petitions is through the Liberal Studies Program.

Requests for late or retroactive withdrawals from courses should be submitted directly to​
