Petition for Action
Deviations from Penn Engineering course requirements and special requests require the submission of a” Petition for Action” form. All actions require the approvals noted on the form. Final submission is to the RAS Office for approval of request.
NOTE: Students in single degree programs should address their petitions to their schools. Dual- and joint-degree students should address their petitions for degree requirement exceptions to the school(s) whose degree requirements are affected; in some cases, a petition to both schools will be required. All other petitions for exceptions (e.g. late drop, late add, late withdrawal, late change of grade type) should be submitted to the home school. Students submitting a Petition for Action requesting late withdrawal from a course must also include a Course Withdrawal form (https://ugrad.seas.upenn.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Withdrawal-from-a-Course-11-2020.pdf)
Please note updated procedures due to operational changes in response to COVID-19 for the Spring 2021 term.
