Appeals for Extenuating Circumstances

Appeals for Extenuating Circumstances

Ask a complete question, like "How do I obtain my transcripts?"


Students with extenuating circumstances or emergencies that warrant special consideration may appeal for an exception from University policies and regulations.It is the student's responsibility to obtain any and all necessary supporting information and documentation from instructors, physicians, counselors, etc. to present to the appropriate University staff member or office authorized to make a decision about an appeal for an exception. A favorable final decision will be based on documented circumstances presented by the student that lead to clear and convincing findings of fact in his/her favor. Consequences (e.g., academic or financial) the student may face, either real or perceived, are not usually reasons for an exception.
