Undergraduate Petitions

Exceptions to Undergraduate Academic Policy are granted only in rare instances. This is not because the university is unfeeling toward individual needs, but because it cares about the integrity of its academic standards and believes that by maintaining that integrity, the university ultimately provides a greater service to the entire community.
