Academic Petition Process
Call or walk into Student Records and Registration to initiate an academic petition. (Transcript changes (drop/withdraw), academic dismissal, graduation requirements.) A form with questions will be emailed to you.
Answer every question and attach supporting documents if applicable. Keep information clear, concise, and relevant to your petition and situation. Don’t forget to proofread your petition before submitting.
Depending on the petition, Exception Counselors will gather information such as professor’s comments, degree progress, additional department input, and clarification of specifics.
All documents including the responses you submitted along with additional information from the “Office Prep” stage are reviewed in committee. The committee consists of faculty, administration, and student representation.
A decision is made once the Committee has weighed all options. The committee is tasked with doing what they consider to be equitable for the student and protecting the integrity of BYU-Idaho.
You will receive a decision email to your byui.edu email address. You will also receive a call from an Exception Counselor to answer any questions and explore further options.
Depending on the committee’s decision changes to your official record may be applied.
