Petition Instructions

Complete The Petition Request

Explain fully your reasons for petitioning with a one-page attached, typed statement that is double spaced and in 12 point font, which you attach to your university petition. Only a one-page statement will be reviewed. Therefore, be succinct, with your focus on pertinent issues that led to the petition (what happened, when it happened, etc.)

Submit Documentation

All documentation supporting your reasons to petition is subject to verification. Any submission of false or fraudulent information or documentation could warrant judicial sanction. Petitions cannot be considered without documentation.

Instructor Statement Form

Submit an Instructor Statement Form for each course that you are petitioning to drop, add or receive a refund, etc. If the instructor is no longer at UF, the department chair may complete the forms. If the petition requires an interviewing officer statement, this form should not be submitted to the Registrar's Office until the student has completed this statement with his or her department and attached it to the petition.

Complete College Interview

Complete an interview with your college, and your interviewing officer can answer any questions about procedures, required documentation, etc. The college will provide a signed statement for your petition, utilizing an Interviewing Officer Statement Form. If you no longer live in the area, it may be possible to arrange telephone interviews at the discretion of the interviewing officer. Do not submit any petition documentation to the Registrar's Office, especially instructor forms, until the interviewing officer statement form has been completed.

Retain a Copy

The documents you submit will remain permanently on file with the university; they will not be returned. Keep a copy for your files.
