Spring 2021 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. Before submitting your request, you are strongly encouraged to review the Undergraduate Bulletin.

A number of CSE and ISE courses have 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 specific 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 to be approved and all decisions made by the committee are final..
