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.
  • A statement from your doctor verifying that your medical condition necessitates an exception to policy.  We will also accept verification from the University Accessibility Center (UAC).

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