  2. Substitution of a course for a required course, if not approved as part of the graduation planning document.
  3. Adding or dropping a class after the deadline.
  4. Applying for an overload of course work if a student has less than a 3.00 grade point average.

Petition forms concerning the above situations are available in the Records Office and at this website. Upon completion, the form must be returned to that office.
