Petitions for Late Change of Registration

All registration transactions are subject to the dates and deadlines established in the academic calendar. Any requests to change your registration after the stated deadline has lapsed must be submitted via a Petition for Late Change of Registration form. All petitioners must carefully read and sign the petition guidelines.

  • Petitions are only submitted to request a transaction after that transaction deadline has passed. For example, if you're hoping to drop a class after the drop period has passed, you would fill out one of these petitions.
  • Petitions are a request for an exception to academic regulations or policies and there is no guarantee of approval.

**Please note that there will be no ARC meeting on December 26th. In lieu of that meeting, the ARC will meet on Friday, December 21st. The deadline for the 12/21 meeting is noon on Thursday, December 20th.** You may find a schedule for the ARC meetings through January 9, 2019 here. Regularly scheduled ARC meetings will resume on January 2nd.

Submitting Your Petition

The completed petition and signed guidelines must be returned to the Office of the Registrar where your request will be routed to the Academic Requirements Committee for review. Complete only the sections pertinent to your request. The Academic Requirements Committee meets every Wednesday morning during the term. In order for your petition to be considered for a particular week's session, you must submit your complete petition, including any supporting documentation and all signatures, to the Office of the Registrar by noon on Thursday. That will ensure your petition will be considered in the ARC meeting the next week.

Students who petition will hear back about the Committee's decision within 1-2 business days following the Wednesday meeting. If you do not agree with the outcome, please consult your outcome email for directions on how to appeal a Committee decision. Students may appeal once per change request under usual circumstances.
