The Academic Regulation Appeals Committee considers petitions from undergraduate students seeking exceptions to the academic regulations stated in the FAMU Catalog. The following type of appeals may be filed:
- Late or retroactive course withdrawal (limited to one year after course enrollment)
- Late add or registration (limited to the end of current semester)
- Late application for graduation (limited to four weeks after the published term deadline)
NOTE: Supporting documentation must accompany all appeal petitions.
Appeal requests must be picked up from college/school of your major. Non-degree seeking students must petition through the Registrar’s Office. Colleges are not responsible for petitions that are not submitted directly to and discussed with the proper college representative. The Academic Regulation Appeals Committee normally meets monthly. In order for a petition to be reviewed by a college/school and to be heard at a regular meeting, it must be submitted by the end of the first week of each month.
