What is an Academic Petition?

 

AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME AS AN UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT?

The Undergraduate Academic Petition application gives undergraduate students the ability to request an exception to certain academic policies, such as: late add/withdrawals, transfer credit adjustments, etc. The Petition can be accessed via the application Banner Self Service. Once there, you can select the type of petition needed, term affected, the course involved (if applicable), then you will be asked to provide a short explanation of the petition and your reason for requesting the exception to policy. The application then routes the request to the appropriate approvers and you should hear a response within 1-3 days.
