Petitioning Due to Extenuating Circumstances

If academic performance for the trimester was impacted by extenuating circumstances, students may petition the Admissions and Advanced Standing Committee to late drop or to late withdraw from the term. The committee will look for petitions that are due to extraordinary reasons (beyond the control of the student). Extraordinary reasons that may be considered include documented medical reasons and personal or family emergencies. Complete the appropriate petition form »

The petition form may require the signature of the advisor, instructor and department chair. If you are not on campus, you may request that your instructor, advisor and/or department chair send an email to the Registrar stating whether or not he/she supports, does not support, or is aware of your petition.
