Academic Petitions

Academic Petition Form (94K | 1 pg)

University of Indianapolis students have the privilege of submitting petitions requesting special permission for exceptions to regulations and policies. These petitions are considered by the Academic Petitions Committee, a standing faculty committee that meets once each month, usually on the first Tuesday. All student petitions are considered on an individual basis, with attention being given to the student’s academic record and the reason for the request. Submit the completed form to the Office of the Registrar, Esch Hall 131. Please submit your materials by the 25th of the month in order to ensure review for the next month. Once the petition has been submitted, you will be notified of a decision within 4-6 weeks.

Students who have been declared academically ineligible have the privilege of submitting petitions requesting permission to return to the university after an absence of one regular semester (Semester I or II).

Please provide the following:

  1. An exact statement of the special privilege, exemption, or other petition you want to make.
  2. A statement of the reasons for your request. Include any pertinent facts or supporting documents that might help the committee make a decision (e.g. course syllabi, catalog descriptions, program descriptions).
  3. Your signature, complete address, and telephone number.
  4. The appropriate signatures and recommendations.
  5. Letters of support (optional).
