Exceptions to Academic Policies

Petitions for Exceptions to Policies, Regulations or Requirements

Petitions for any course-related grievance will not be accepted after one calendar year from the time of the start of the course(s) in question, or after the completion of the program in which the student is matriculated, whichever date comes first.

Exemptions to Policies, Regulations, or Requirements

Students requesting exceptions to policies, regulations or requirements must write a clear and concise statement describing the requested exception, including evidence supported by a rationale. This request must be submitted to the Dean of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies (Taylor Hall) along with an “Exception to Policy” form signed by the student and the student’s faculty adviser. The Dean responds to the petition and/or makes a determination to convene the Graduate Academic Standing and Petitions Committee to review the petition.
