Did you miss the deadline to add a class? Don’t worry. Email the add/drop petition with the instructor and departmental approvals. Already submitted a request? No need to resubmit.

Petitions are for requesting an exception to a faculty-established policy or academic deadline. Students are required to provide evidence of compelling circumstances which would warrant approval. Present all information in a clear and concise manner. Additional information can be found through Academic Advising.

Petitions can only be processed when all holds are cleared. Please address any registration holds before submitting a petition.

We are currently only accepting petitions by email. Return your completed petition with all required statements, signatures, stamps, and supporting documentation to registrar@uoregon.edu as soon as possible. All completed petitions will be reviewed; highest priority is given to those with current registration deadlines.
