Obligation of the Office of the University Registrar and Deadline

  • The university is obligated to ensure the integrity of the academic transcript as an accurate historical document.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 Registrar 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.
