Jana,

Here is our exception policy.

Exceptions
Exceptions to the 6-course drop limit may be granted based on the following:
1.    A severe illness or other debilitating condition that affects the student's ability to satisfactorily complete the course. Supporting documentation must be provided.
2.    The student's responsibility to provide the care of a sick, injured, or needy person such that providing the care affects the student's ability to satisfactorily complete the course. Supporting documentation must be provided.
3.    The death of a person considered to be a member of the student's family or someone who is otherwise considered to have a sufficiently close relationship to the student. Supporting documentation must be provided.
4.    The student's active duty service as a member of the military or of a person considered to be a member of the student's family or someone who is otherwise considered to a have a sufficiently close relationship to the student. Supporting documentation must be provided.
5.    A change of the student's work schedule that is beyond the control of the student and that affects the student's ability to satisfactorily complete the course. Supporting documentation must be provided.
6.    Other good causes as determined by the Office of the Provost.
Students may petition to drop more than the 6-course limit, or to drop a course and not have the drop count against the 6-course limit. These petitions will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost. The following circumstances will not be considered valid reasons for requesting an exception to the 6-course drop limit policy:
1.    An attempt to avoid scholastic probation.
2.    Failing a course.
3.    Possibility of receiving a grade that will lower the grade point average.
To request an exception, this form must be submitted with supporting documentation.
Students petitioning to drop a class for non-academic reasons should continue to attend and perform in the class until the petition request is resolved.

Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Drops in excess of six drop

Good afternoon,

I would like to survey this community and see what policy/process you have in place for those students who have already exceeded their 6 drops but are requesting to drop additional courses.  Do you require them to submit an official appeal to drop the courses?  Are any drops in excess of the 6 drop not permitted?  I would appreciate any and all information you are willing to provide.  Feel free to email me directly at jana.boatright at tamut.edu<mailto:jana.boatright at tamut.edu>.  Thank you.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Thank you,

Jana Boatright
