General Petitions

If you have a special request, you need a general petition signed by the proper authorities. A general petition is the formal vehicle used by students when requesting that the college initiate an action pertaining to student enrollment. Refer to the policy statement on the next page for specifics. General petitions are available on the website or at the Welcome Center in the Student Center.
