The chart should indicate the courses already completed (marked with an "X"), it should show the courses you are taking this semester, and it should indicate which courses you plan to take next semester.

Can I Schedule an Appointment?

You may email any of the above contacts to schedule an appointment. Please attach a copy of the course sequence chart, as described above, to the email. You may also email any of the above contacts with your general questions or concerns.

How Do I File a Petition?

  1. Complete the General Petition form.
  2. Prepare a copy of your course sequence chart, as described above under the "What to Bring" heading.
  3. Email the completed petition form, your marked up course sequence and the course syllabus for the subject course/courses to any of the above contacts.

The submission of your petition does not guarantee its approval. It is recommended that you start this process at the earliest possible date. To expedite your request, please make sure you complete all the required information on the form, clearly state your request/justification and attach any other necessary documentation.

Please note that the petition approval cycle includes departmental review, Dean's review, and Provost's review. We appreciate your patience.
