Instructor Feedback Submission Form. WSU login credentials are required.

Instructor feedback provides the Petition Committee additional information to consider in making their decision. Instructor feedback is only required for a drop/withdraw when a final grade has been assigned.

  • Dropping/Withdrawing from a Course:
    • An official final grade has been assigned: Required.
    • An official final grade has not been assigned: Not required, but students may obtain it if they feel that it would be beneficial.
  • Term Withdrawal (drop/withdraw from all courses): Not required.
57. Student Petitions for Exceptions to Academic Calendar Deadlines and Withdrawal Limits

Students may, with the payment of a service fee, petition for exceptions to the academic calendar deadlines (e.g., withdrawal after the deadline) or petition for withdrawal from an individual course after the student has used the maximum number allowed. Petitions are considered only in the case of extraordinary circumstances, such as a medical emergency, and require supporting documentation.

  • Undergraduate and professional students may petition through the Registrar's Office. Graduate students may petition through the Graduate School.
  • Petitions for exceptions to the academic calendar deadlines and withdrawal limits must be made within two years of the date of enrollment in the course.
