Academic Advising Online Petition Forms

(Petition forms are now closed. No more submissions will be considered for Spring 2019 semester)

To seek permission to enroll in a CSE or ISE course, please complete the form that corresponds with your request. In order for your request to be considered, all required course perquisites must be successfully completed. Note that permission to enroll in a CSE or ISE course that has a time conflict with any of your enrolled courses will not be considered. Before submitting your request, you are strongly encouraged to review the Undergraduate Bulletin.

NOTE: Each of the forms below allows you to request permission for a specific subset of CSE or ISE courses. If the course for which you are seeking permission is not on the corresponding form, you are not permitted to enroll in the course.

Failure to complete the appropriate form will result in your request being automatically denied. Please allow 1-2 weeks for your request to be reviewed. You will be notified of the decision via email. Please be advised, requests are not guaranteed for approval and all decisions made by the CSE Undergraduate Committee are final.
