Student Petitions

While students are responsible for understanding and adhering to academic policies and deadlines, we know that students may encounter extraordinary circumstances that prevent them from being able to do so. The Scholastic Review Committee (SRC) reviews petitions from students who would like to petition to do one or more of the following:

  • Petition to withdraw from one or more courses in a previous term
  • Petition to change the grading option for a class in a previous term (graded to pass/no pass OR back to graded)
  • Petition to return to the UO after being academically disqualified

 Please note that petitions are not automatically granted and this process is intended to redress extenuating circumstances that typically fit the following criteria:

  • Extraordinary
  • Beyond a student's control
  • Documented
  • In some cases, that significant progress has been made to address the issue

If you would like to petition for a class in the current term or seek a tuition refund after withdrawing from courses, please complete a petition with the Office of the Registrar:

Please note that the petitions above must be completed and submitted to the Registrar by Sunday of Week 10 in order to be reviewed in the term (except for the tuition refund petition, which should be submitted within one year). Any incomplete petitions or petitions received by the Registrar after this deadline will be referred to the Office of Academic Advising for a retroactive petition process, which may require some additional steps.
