Academic policies and deadlines are crafted by the University to ensure integrity and provide equity for all UMCP students. Exceptions to Policy are not appropriate solutions for problems students can avoid by taking personal responsibility. Our office considers granting "Exceptions" to students who have made a diligent effort to work within the requirements but who encounter problems that are clearly beyond their control.
It takes time to arrive at a fair decision, therefore, do not assume your request will be granted. Take whatever actions are necessary in the event your request is denied.
Requests generally take between 3 – 5 business days to process. You will be notified via email when your request has been completed. For all inquiries and questions, or to check on the status of your request, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not contact our office by telephone or in person in regard to Exceptions To Policy.
TYPE 1 EXCEPTION (Any of the following exceptions requests)
TYPE 2 EXCEPTION (All other types of exception requests)
