Academic Petitions

Any student or former student of Georgia College has the right of timely petition. Petitions are available from the Dean of the appropriate college and are to be used by the student, in consultation with the advisor, to remedy undue hardship and specific inequities that may adversely affect the student’s ability to fulfill the academic requirements of the University. Petitions must be used to secure approval of special agreements between faculty and students on academic matters and to provide for emergency situations caused by unforeseen complications in fulfilling academic requirements. Petitions must have the signed approval of the appropriate University officials.

Petitions regarding course registration, withdrawals, or grades must be made no later than the next semester of enrollment or by the end of one calendar year if not enrolled, whichever comes first.
