Deviations from academic policies or requirements must be approved by academic petition. Petition forms may be obtained from the KPC website or Student Services. Academic petitions are to be routed through a faculty advisor, division chair of the subject area where the course is being petitioned, and the Director.
All petitions requesting that transferred elective credit be accepted for degree requirements must be accompanied by catalog copy of the course description(s) from the institution of origin. Petitioned courses, other than those from UAF or UAS, must meet transfer credit criteria for acceptance prior to final approval.
Final authority to deny or approve petitions pertaining to school or college requirements rests with the KPC Director. Petitions pertaining to GERs and/or General University Requirements (GURs) must, in addition, be processed through the UAA Office of Academic Affairs, with final authority to approve or deny resting with the provost. Students and the department will be notified of the decision.
Changes in course level, grading or number of credits awarded cannot be petitioned. UAA courses not on the approved baccalaureate GER list cannot be petitioned to meet a GER.
