Petition Procedures


A petition should be used in those instances where a student seeks relief from normal Program or University rules and regulations because of special circumstances such as illness or bereavement. Types of requests include requests to: drop or add courses after the appropriate faculty deadlines, or reconsider an academic decision. A statement from a physician, counsellor, etc., must accompany all petitions based on health-related grounds. Petition forms are available at the Independent Studies office and the Registrar's Office.
