Retroactive Petitions

Students who fill out a retroactive petition are requesting consideration for failing to meet an established University deadline. This petition should accompany the form which the student would have submitted if the request had been before the deadline. For example, to add a course after the add/drop deadline the add/drop form, signed by the Academic Dean, should accompany the request. Additionally, a student should include a written statement and supporting documentation explaining why the deadline was missed. All retroactive petitions go before an approval committee. Students will be notified of the committee's decision via email. There is no appeals process for all committee decisions are final.
