Scholarship Petitions

Exceptions are sometimes granted based on individual needs. In making decisions, extenuating circumstances such as serious illness, injury, or disability; death or serious illness in one's own immediate family; and extensive family responsibilities such as those faced by a single parent with dependent children are considered. Exceptions are not made because of marriage, difficulty of curriculum, employment, or graduate school tests.

If your situation is regarding a medical condition please submit a petition by doing the following:

  • Send an e-mail to
  • Include your name and student ID number in the subject line.
  • Describe your circumstances and make a specific, clear request.
  • Please have the University Accessibility Center or your personal doctor send us a letter or submit a Medical/Clinical Verification Form verifying that your medical condition necessitates an exception to policy. Our fax number is (801) 422-0235.

If your situation concerns something other than a medical condition, please make an appointment with a OneStop Counselor by calling (801) 422-7075.
