The procedures for complaints, petitions, and appeals related to University-wide and college-based policies are listed here.
To adhere to University policy, the College of Education has developed two forms: Petition for Waiver or Variance and Student Petition for Resolution. Students should complete these forms and submit to appropriate department for review. Please remember that these pettion processes are not intended to address admissions issues or questions.
Petition for Waiver or Variance
Any student in the College of Education may petition for a waiver or variance of established policy, procedure, rule, or guideline governed by the college. The Student Petition for Waiver or Variance must be submitted by the end of the term prior to the term in which the exception is needed.
NOTE: This form should be used for requests of substitutions of required courses, waivers of college policies governing graduate students, or waivers of college policies governing doctoral students. This form is not intended to address admissions issues or questions. Download the Petition for Waiver or Variance
Student Petition for Resolution
Students are encouraged to discuss academic or non-academic problems or grade concerns with the instructor prior to filing a formal petition, in an effort to gain understanding about the basis of the treatment or grade. If the issue is not resolved informally, students should complete the Student Petition for Resolution process. Download the Student Petition for Resolution
