Exception to Policy Request Form

Directions: Once your request is received, it is within a secure server; however, this initial submission is not secure. Therefore, if the nature of your request requires inclusion or discussion of very sensitive or confidential information, complete this form with bare essentials, indicate you have additional information, and bring that additional material in person to the SPH Center for Academic Success and Achievement in SPH 0222. Your request is not submitted until you receive a screen telling you it has been sent to the Dean's Office. You will also receive email confirmation that your request has been successfully submitted.

Please allow a minimum of 7 business days for your request to be reviewed. During peak times (March - April and October - December) it can take at least 3 weeks to have a request reviewed, due to high volume. This is especially true for Credit Overload and Permission to Enroll at Another University requests. Students are encouraged to submit requests well in advance.

Student Acknowledgement: I understand that in striving for equitable treatment of all students, the School of Public Health strictly adheres to University policies regarding registration and schedule adjustment. I have read the relevant policy in the Undergraduate Catalog and/or the deadline date for registration/adjustment transactions given in the Schedule of Classes. I understand that exceptions to these policies and deadlines are granted by the School only under extreme and unusual circumstances. I also understand that if any of the information provided is false, academic dishonesty procedures can be lodged against me.  By submitting a request, I am acknowledging that such requests are for truly unusual and/or mitigating circumstances, are not without limit, and are not remedies for errors in judgment.
