Petition for an Exception

Students who want to design their own track, request an exception to requirements for an Honors track, or request an exception to requirements for maintaining active standing in Honors should submit a formal petition. Your petition is a proposal in which you make the case for the exception you are requesting. It is given careful consideration by the college Dean in consultation with the Honor College Faculty Council, as needed, or, if you are appealing the Dean’s decision, the petition is reviewed by a committee established in accordance with the college bylaws.
