Deadline to Submit Petitions for Exception to Registration
The university is obligated to ensure the integrity of the academic transcript as an accurate historical document. Therefore, in order for the academic transcript to reflect the actual history of a student’s experience at the university, an exception to university policy is warranted only in cases involving documented unusual or extenuating circumstances.
A petition is a request for exception to university policy and review and/or approval by the Office of the University is not guaranteed. Students may submit a petition in a reasonable period of time, typically within the term under consideration. Petitions for exception to registration may be reviewed retroactively at the discretion of the University Registrar not to exceed two years (2) from the end of the term in which the requested action is sought. Petitions more than two (2) years from the end of the term under consideration are not guaranteed to be reviewed and/or approved. For further information regarding the Petition for Exception to Registration process, please email RegPetition@kent.edu.
- Undergraduate students may elect to take certain courses on a pass-fail basis. The purpose of this option is to provide an opportunity for the exploration of a broader range of coursework than is normally included in specific and distributive degree requirements. Students considering this option should be aware that some institutions of higher education do not accept transfer credit taken on a pass-fail basis. In addition, most graduate and professional schools prefer that pass-fail credit be kept to a minimum.
- Students should contact their college, school, or Regional Campus office for clarification of the pass-fail option and for application of that option to their particular program prior to selecting the pass-fail grade option. Conditions governing the acceptability of coursework that pertains to all students may be found in the Pass-Fail Policy in the University Catalog.
- Undergraduate students wishing to take coursework on a pass-fail basis should complete the Pass/Fail Grade Request Form (PDF) by the published deadlines. Only one course per semester may be taken pass-fail. (NOTE: Some courses such as Kent Core or graduate courses cannot be taken pass-fail.)
- The last day to select the pass-fail grading option varies by semester. Please see the appropriate Registrar Important Dates and Events by Term calendar for published deadlines.
- NOTE: If class beginning and/or ending dates are other than the regular session dates for a full term, the deadlines for processing registration transactions may be different. For these flexibly-scheduled classes, access the Detailed Class Search from the Schedule of Classes. After locating the course, click on the "Registration Deadlines" link to determine course specific dates.
