In cases of exceptional circumstance, students can request an exception to a published academic by submitting the student petition form to Enrollment Services. Such policies may include but are not limited to late drop or withdrawal, late add, refund/waiver of tuition/fees after the published deadline, refund/waiver of late payment or late registration fees, changing to or from an audit, and course substitution and/or transfer policies. Students must submit the student petition form and include documentary evidence to support the request if applicable. Each case is decided upon its own merits and the decision of the committee is final and not subject to appeal, unless there is information pertinent to the outcome, which was not submitted at the time of the initial request. The student petition form, including instructions on how to complete it, is available online and in Enrollment Services on all COCC campuses. Please call 541-383-7500 for more information or have questions about petitions.
