- Petition for Exception
- Waivers and Substitutions
You may petition for a Distribution exception if you feel that a course you've taken is appropriate for Distribution, but it does not currently have a designation. The Academic Standards Board does not overturn or change existing designations. (For example, if it's already labeled as HU, we would not consider a request to use it for SS.).
What Does the Board Look for in Distribution Petitions?
What Should I Include in My Petition?
- A completed Distribution Petition Cover Sheet and Instructor Comment Form.
- Your argument explaining how the course meets the College's criteria. "I need this to graduate" is not a valid argument. Keep your focus on the College's guidelines and be specific in explaining how you feel the course meets those criteria.
- A detailed course description. (You may copy and paste from the LSA Course Guide if there is a detailed description there.)
- A course syllabus.
