MITCommittee on Academic Performance

Petition Process: Submission Deadlines

The Committee accepts petitions on a rolling basis and reviews them as schedules permit. Decisions are reported by email as soon as possible after each meeting.  Meetings are currently scheduled once a month and are held on Fridays during the academic year.  Students can expect to be notified of petition decisions by the Tuesday following the monthly meeting.

The deadlines to submit completed petitions for review during the 2020-2021 academic year are as follows:

Petitions to Exceed Credit Limits

Petitions to exceed credit limits should be submitted before the beginning of each term, so that you will know how to register:

Late or Incomplete Petitions

The Committee will not review a petition until it is complete. The CAP Administrator will hold your incomplete petition and notify you via email of any missing information.

Note that the CAP reviews petitions for undergraduates only; graduate students should follow the petition process outlined on the website of the Office of Graduate Education.
