College Petition Forms

Sometimes, unfortunate events can take place during a student's pursuit of a degree. In the event that something occurs that impacts your academic performance, we want to inform you that the college, as well as the University, has a petition process in place.

In order to begin the college petition process, students must first schedule a petition meeting with an academic advisor. Meeting with an advisor allows for the petition process to go as smoothly as possible. Advisors will review all materials to ensure overall validity and completeness. When petitions are submitted correctly the first time, the sooner they may be reviewed. To schedule a meeting with your academic advisor, please log on to the Success Network.
