Petition Guidelines

 

You must submit all forms by the deadline.

The Exceptions Committees meet every month, with new deadlines each month. Submit all forms to the College of Fine Arts Advising Center. Petitions will not be accepted if any information is missing. Do not forget to sign and date your paperwork. 

Include all relevant documentation.

Examples include: transcripts, medical documentation/doctors' notes, emails, invoices, letters, obituary/funeral information, etc.

Meet with your academic advisor.

Students are required to meet with an academic advisor to ensure the academic requirements and goals are being met. If you are seeking readmission, you must create a Student Success Plan with the help of an advisor. Consulting an academic advisor will ensure your petition is complete and argues a strong case.
