Petitions: Graduate School Rules

Section 1.6 of the Graduate School Handbook

Graduate students are expected to follow the rules approved by the Graduate Council and presented in this handbook. A student who believes that circumstances warrant a waiver of a rule may submit a petition to the Graduate School.

Petitions about Graduate School rules must be directed to the Graduate School, must include a written statement from the student requesting the waiver of a specific rule and describing the circumstances, and must include written statements from the student’s advisor, the course instructor (if appropriate), and the Graduate Studies Committee Chair, reacting to the student’s request and providing any additional information pertinent to the waiver request.
