The petitioning process is a formal procedure in which your written petition is given careful consideration. Two committees see your petition: the CHP College Committee which is comprised of faculty and staff from the College of Health Professions, and the University Committee which is comprised of faculty and staff from several academic disciplines at Wichita State University.
Your petition is a request for special consideration. Please present your case clearly and completely. Specifically address the reasons why your situation warrants special consideration.

Include Documentation: In most cases, your petition will not be considered by the committee and no action will be taken unless you have supporting documentation. The committee does not need extensive documentation of your situation, but you must provide enough documentation to verify the situation and show why it affected your academic work. Statements from medical professionals or employers must be on official company letterhead. Be sure pertinent dates are clearly indicated.
