Students in the College who believe that their circumstances might warrant an exemption from a College rule may submit a petition. They may do so by filling out a petition form and writing a statement. In this petition statement, the student must demonstrate why he or she feels that this exemption should be allowed. If extenuating circumstances such as health or family issues are cited, proper documentation will be necessary.
If the Committee on Undergraduate Academic Standing does not believe that the case warrants review, the petition will be denied. Decisions are final. Students may appeal a decision only if they can present new information or documentation.
