Students can petition for Exceptions to University Wide Academic Policies, also known as FacEx Appeals, to enroll in a course, withdraw from a course, change credit hours or grading designation, and more after the respective enrollment deadlines have passed. View the full policy at the following link, and read the notes below on common mistakes.
Read This First
Requested Action - Section B
Please double-check which action you are requesting. Note that a late withdrawal results in a "W" on your transcript. Please contact your advisor if you are concerned about this at all. If you are changing the credit hours or the section of a course, this falls under the "Add" action.
Course Details - Section C
Please make sure to note BOTH the 3-digit catalog number AND the 5-digit class number, as well as both the semester and the year. This information is required before we can proceed with your request. You can find both numbers in Enroll & Pay.
Required Approvals - Section E
Before Governance can move forward with your petition, you need to make sure it has the approval required for the action you are requesting. The student is responsible for securing the signatures of the instructor (if adding) and the chair of the department that houses the course.
If you are requesting a retroactive withdrawal (after the semester has ended and the grade has been posted), you must go through the Retroactive Undergraduate Medical or Compassionate Withdrawal process through the Registrar's office (link below). FacEx cannot process these.
