Exception Policy
Admissions and Records Office deadlines, policies and procedures are strictly enforced. If a student has an extenuating circumstance requiring an exception to any deadline, policy or procedure, then he/she must file a request for exception. To file for an exception:
1. Student must submit a petition in writing to the appropriate Instructional Department Chairperson. (For registration this would be the advisor’s Department Chairperson) Once the Department Chairperson forwards a request for exception to the Registrar’s Office, the student must pay a $25.00 non-refundable processing fee.
2. Cases will be reviewed for approval or disapproval by a committee comprised of the Dean of Student Services, the Dean of Instructional Affairs, the Registrar and the Department Chairperson submitting the request for an exemption of policy.
3. Students will be informed of the committee’s decision within five (5) working days from the official processing date as identified by the Admissions and Records Office.
4. Exception cases that have not been finalized with the student within the five-day period will automatically be rendered approved.
5. Only after all the approvals are granted can the Exception Request be processed. All supporting documents will be filed in the student’s record.
A maximum of three exception requests may be requested by a student during their academic career.
