OS Petition Process


Current OS majors may petition courses to count toward their OS requirements. Students may petition study abroad courses, courses taken at other US institutions, or courses offered at UM but not listed on the OS curriculum sheet (including special topics courses).

Courses may be petitioned at any time, including prior to enrollment, while enrolled, or retroactively after completed.

Detailed information is available on the OS Student Portal.


Prospective OS students may petition courses not listed in our prerequisite information that they wish to count for a prerequisite requirement. Please send an email to with your petition request and information on any courses you wish to have reviewed (please include a course description and full syllbus (if available). 

Prospective students may petition prereq courses at any time, but should do AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to ensure that there is adequate time for review and further course preparation should the petition be denied.
