REQUEST FOR EXCEPTION
Directions and Guidelines for Processing this Exception Request
As a fully-accredited public institution of higher learning, the University of Wyoming must comply with various regulations and principles of fairness, uniformity and accountability. University Regulations (UNIREGS) have been established by the faculty and administration to address these concerns. Exceptions to UNIREGS are justified only in extraordinary circumstances that are normally outside the control of the student.
1. In reviewing requests for exceptions, university officers must give consideration to all relevant factors such as:
a. maintenance of general academic standards;
b. general principles of equal treatment to all students;
c. justification presented for exception to University Regulations;
d. contribution to the student problem by university faculty or staff members through misinformation or failure to properly
perform duties or undertakings;
e. effect of denial of the petition.
2. Please present all related facts clearly and concisely. Set forth your version of the facts, circumstances, and consequences. You may be contacted in order to provide further documentation that relates to your request. If your request is based on a medical problem, be sure to attach documentation from your doctor. If you feel you received misinformation from a faculty or staff member, you are encouraged to ask that individual to provide a statement that should be attached to this petition.
3. You are responsible for tracking the progress of your petition using the confirmation number received once you have submitted your petition. Therefore, you may find it useful to print out the completed form for the tracking number and for your own personal records. The electronic petition process can involve contacting a number of faculty/staff members. For this reason please allow up to two weeks processing time for your petition.
This form is to be used to request exceptions to University Regulations that affect your academic record at the University of Wyoming. Please be aware of the fact that there is no guarantee that your request will be approved. This form should not be used for requests pertaining to financial matters. A separate form is required for each request.
