Before submitting petitions, students must speak with an advisor.

PETITION TO DROP A COURSE RETROACTIVELY

Students must first meet with an advisor to review the petition process and documents. Then, the complete petition package must be submitted, including the student course performance summary form and a personal statement explaining why the course should not appear on your transcript. It will be sent through a committee to be assessed anonymously. A successful result can result in either a grade of “W” Withdrawn (see Senate policy here) or the course and grade being eliminated from your transcript and file.
