Petitions are reviewed weekly on Wednesdays by the Academic Petition Review Committee. Petitions completed by 12:00 pm (noon) on Tuesday will be reviewed that same week. Please note that if your petition requires instructor and/or advisor input, your petition is not complete until they respond to our requests for information. The decision of the Academic Petition Review Committee decision will be sent by email no later than Thursday morning.
You will receive an email no later than Thursday morning requesting additional information. Please provide the requested information as soon as possible. If you fail to respond with the requested information within two weeks the Committee will take no further action on your petition. You will be notified if the Committee needs additional information from faculty or staff. The Registrar’s Office will reach out to faculty or staff on the Committee’s behalf.
To appeal a denial, you must re-submit a petition to the committee and include new information and/or documentation. If your first appeal is denied by the committee, you may request that your petition materials be forwarded to the Dean of the college in which you have declared your major (students with an undeclared major will have petitions reviewed by the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences). You have the option of addressing a written statement to the Dean. If the Dean denies your appeal, you may request that your petition materials be forwarded to the Provost. The decision of the Provost is not appealable.
