Spring 2020 Academic Advising Online Petition Forms

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 prerequisites 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.

 A number of CSE and ISE courses have most, or all of their seats reserved for specific populations of students. A petition request will not be considered if you encounter a “reserve error” upon enrollment. 

 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. Some requests will not be reviewed until specified dates. See below for details. 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.

These Google forms must be completed within your Google Apps for Education (i.e.,@stonybrook.edu email) credentials, otherwise you will not be able to open it. The easiest way is to open them in an anonymous browser window and login with your Stony Brook student account.

Enrollment in CSE 416, Spring 2020

  • If you are a CSE major who plans to graduate in the Spring 2020 semester and you need to enroll in CSE 416 as a course substitution for CSE 308, fill out this form. Note, if you are not graduating in Spring 2020, your request will be tabled until all degree candidates have been accommodated. 

 Third Attempt Support Request

  • If you are requesting a letter of support from the Computer Science department to take a required course for a third or more attempt for the Spring 2020 term, fill out this form. If your request is granted, you will need to follow up with the appropriate advising office to submit a course retake petition to the relevant Committee on Academic Standing and Appeals.  Support from the CSE department does not guarantee that your petition will be approved.

Declared CSE/ISE Majors & Minors

  • If you are a declared CSE or ISE MAJOR who is graduating in Spring 2020 and are requesting permission to take a course in the Spring 2020 term, fill out this form. You must explain why you are unable to register for the course without permission. Note: if you are looking to enroll in CSE 416 in lieu of CSE 308, this is not the correct form and your request will not be considered! Please use the form specific to that request. 

  • If you are a declared CSE or ISE MINOR and would like to request permission to take a CSE or ISE course that has a ‘CSE major’ or ‘ISE major’ prerequisite, fill out this form.
