Exception to Policy

Exceptions to academic and administrative policies may only be granted for compelling reasons that are beyond a student's control.  Unfamiliarity with a policy is not considered grounds for an exception.  All exceptions must be submitted on the appropriate petition form accompanied by pertinent documentation evidencing the circumstance.  It is expected that before a petition for exception is requested, that all other appropriate appeals and administrative options have been exhausted.  By submission of the petition, the requester authorizes the University to examine any and all pertinent records or contact any party from whom information is needed in order to make an informed decision.
