Exceptions to Academic Policies

Revised August 17, 2018

Petitions

Petitions for change of grades or any other 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 Associate Dean of Graduate Studies (Taylor Hall, Room 105) along with an “Exception to Policy” form signed by the student and the student’s faculty adviser.
