If there is need for a policy exception, a petition should be sent to the Graduate Chair as soon as possible. There is no formal process or required language for petitions, but the following three items should always be included in the petition:

  • An explanation of the unusual circumstances facing the graduate student.
  • A description of the actions to be taken by the graduate student that will bring the student in line with program guidelines.
  • Proof of support from the student’s major professor/advisor.
