Policy Exception Form
College of Information Studies Exception to Academic Policy Form
College of Information Studies takes requests for exception to academic policy seriously. We consider exception requests in extraordinary and rare cases only in which a problem is “out of the control of a student and not predictable”. It is your responsibility to know and adhere to all academic policies. A complete guide to academic policy can be found in the UMD Undergraduate Catalog.
A written explanation detailing the reasons behind the request is mandatory. Take the time before submitting a request to develop a clear, thoughtful, and concise presentation. Requests are not guaranteed and are considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests generally take between 10 business days to process and are reviewed in the order they are received.
If you experience problems or errors during the submission process please let us know by clicking the "Report a Problem" link (in the lower right hand corner of your browser window) and completing the pop-up form.
