General Petition

Deviating From Curriculum, Policies, or Procedures

Students wishing to deviate from the prescribed curriculum or request exceptions to any college or department policy or procedure must petition the academic department for permission. All petitions must be submitted prior to the act, and class enrollment petitions must be submitted within the university add/drop period. Further, students wishing to take more than the standard number of credit hours should have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. Petitions should be submitted only if there are clearly extraordinary circumstances that merit special consideration. In order for a petition to be approved, circumstances must be extenuating. Once submitted and acted upon, petitions can only be reversed by a subsequent petition. Petition forms are also available in the AAP Office of Student Services, B56 Sibley Hall.
