Academic advising is important to the success of every student. Advising is much more than just building a schedule--it is an ongoing partnership between students and their academic advisors to promote success and help students graduate in a timely manner.

Petition for Exceptions

Students may petition in order to seek exceptions to specific academic rules or regulations.
