The Board of Review meets weekly to hear petitions for deviations from academic procedures and policies. The most common reasons for petitioning include the following. However, any academic policy or procedure may be addressed by the Board of Review:

 

  • Leave of Absence
  • Academic Overload (greater than 18 academic credits in a semester)
  • Late add to a class after the printed deadline
  • Late-drop/withdrawal from a class after the printed deadline
  • Major/minor requirement waivers or revisions
  • Commencement participation prior to completion of degree requirements
  • Change of final exam day/time
