Exceptions to Academic Policy

The Curriculum Committee of the faculty and its subcommittees accept petitions requesting exceptions to academic regulations. Certain regulations allow no exceptions and others may be waived only upon the request of a faculty member. After consultation with the Registrar or the Associate Dean of the College, appeals for exceptions to a rule may be made to the Academic Standards Committee. The appeal should be justified and presented in the form of a written petition, normally with the written endorsement of the student’s advisor and other endorsements as appropriate. Such petitions are placed on the committee’s agenda through the Registrar’s Office.
