Petition Process: Types of Petitions

The Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) considers petition requests (from registered undergraduates only) in two main categories:

  1. Late changes to registration: including adding a subject, dropping a subject, changing subject grading or registration status, or registering following a hold.
  2. Requests to exceed credit limits: including the Warning, IAP, or Freshman credit limit.

Consult the CAP's Staff Associate for situations not mentioned here.
