Petitions & Appeals

As a student at Stony Brook, you have an obligation to review, understand, and abide by University policies, procedures, requirements, and deadlines as contained in the Undergraduate Bulletin. The academic calendar and deadlines are published on the Registrar’s Office website.

On occasion, extraordinary circumstances permit students to request an exception to an academic policy or deadline.  The Executive Officer and the full Committee on Academic Standing and Appeals (CASA) consider requests for exceptions to academic policies through a petition process.  For more information, click on the “Petition Process” and “Types of Petitions” links above.  The Assistant Provost considers other special requests, exceptions, and appeals.  For more information, click on the “Appeals Process” and “Types of Appeals” links above.

Note:  The information on this website applies to all undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, School of Journalism, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, and Sustainability Studies Program.  Students in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS), including AOI CEAS students, should visit here for more information.
