Graduate Student Petition Form

Please find the Graduate Student Petition Form below. Students must save a copy of the pdf to their desktop, then complete their portion of the petition and save. Students should send the petiton with supplemental documents to your Department Coordinator. The Coordinator will route the petition though Docusign for all signatures including the student's. For Dean's Office signature, please send to

When the student indicates the reason for the petition on this new form, the form will automatically update to indicate any supporting documentation that must be included with the petition. All supporting documents must be attached to the petition form before the Graduate Office will sign and forward to SOGS. 
The Registrar's Office must receive completed petitions by 4:45PM the Thursday before a SOGS meeting in order to ensure that the petition will be reviewed at that meeting. Petitions received after this deadline will be held until the subsequent SOGS meeting.
