Should a student decide that they want to transfer to the most current curriculum offered by the department, they must submit a PETITION form requesting the change.  Students are strongly encouraged to align the courses that they have taken, with the new curriculum to understand if any delay in completing the requirements for graduation will result from the change.  PETITION forms must be signed by your faculty advisor, and your department chair, prior to submitting the form to the Office of Student Services.
