CONSULTATION REGARDING PETITIONS
(Reference: Petitions for Exceptions to Academic Policies and Procedures)
Students identified below should consult with the office indicated prior to submitting a petition for a retroactive procedure.
Athletes (Intercollegiate, University Park) must meet with their academic counselors in the Morgan Academic Support Center for Student-Athletes prior to withdrawing; current and future eligibility for intercollegiate athletic competition will be affected. To determine whether a student is classified as a student-athlete, advisers and students can use Academic Summary on eLion.
Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) students should go to the Multicultural Resource Center, 220 Grange Building, University Park. A review by a counselor is required. To determine whether a student is in EOP, authorized advisers can use ISIS screen AURU (press F9): EOP will be indicated in the "RESVSPACE" field if the student was admitted directly to University Park. Alternatively, on ARUEM a 'Y' beside EOP indicates that the student was eligible at University Park but started on another campus; a Y beside EOP/CSP indicates that the student was admitted directly to University Park.
Financial aid recipients must contact the Office of Student Aid, 314 Shields Building, University Park, by e-mail or at 814-865-6301, or the student aid representative at his/her Penn State campus. Future financial aid may be at risk.
International students must contact International Student Services, 410 Boucke Building, University Park, 814-865-6348 or ISS-Adviser@ip.psu.edu. Immigration status is at risk. (To determine whether a student is classified as "international," authorized advisers can use ISIS screen AURU [press F9, then F8 to go to the next page]. Check the "CITIZEN" field at the top right; international students have a number 3.)
Veterans benefit recipients must go to the Office of Veterans Programs, 325 Boucke Building, University Park, or the veterans contact at other Penn State campuses. They risk losing their benefits and may incur costs.
The University may make changes in policies,
procedures, educational offerings, and requirements at any time. Please
consult a Penn State academic adviser for more detailed information.
