University Senate Rules and Regulations

Article II. Section 9Exceptions to University Wide Academic Policies:
Under exceptional circumstances, a student or, if a physical or mental incapacity prevents the student from filing his or her own appeal, another individual on the student’s behalf, may petition for an exception to a University-wide academic policy. The petitioner must follow the procedures on the FacEx, Exception to University-Wide Academic Policy Form (link). If the instructor (instructor’s approval required when adding, changing hours, changing sections or levels) and the department Chair believe  exceptional circumstances exist, the petition shall be forwarded with a recommendation to the Dean of the College or School. If the Dean (or his/her designee) believes exceptional circumstances exist, the petition shall be forwarded with a recommendation to the chair of the Faculty Senate Executive Committee (FacEx). FacEx determines the specific content of the form according to this subsection.  For purposes of this subsection, lack of knowledge of the appropriate policy is not an exceptional circumstance. FacEx’s decision regarding the petition request is final.
