These petitions are reviewed by the Faculty Petitions Committee. There are four different categories that may be petitioned which include:
- Excess Hours (students who wish to enroll in more than 20 hours in a single semester)
- Exception to the Last 24 Hour Residency Requirement
- Waiver of Course
Each category of petition requires specific types of documentation. Documents must be uploaded to the online petition so that everyone in the review process has sufficient information to make a decision.
Undergraduate Petition Workflow
- Student starts the petition and provides a statement along with the required documentation. The student will then route the petition to their academic advisor.
- Academic advisor will review the petition and approve or disapprove the request. The advisor routes the form to the student's program department head.
- Department Head approves or disapproves the petition.
- Petition is routed to the Faculty Petitions Committee for review.
- Once the committee renders a decision, the student will be emailed.
- If the petition is approved it will be applied in the student's MyMocsDegree soon after the committee meets.
