The Graduate Academic Regulations were approved by the American University Faculty Senate and currently govern all American University students enrolled in graduate degree programs, in graduate certificate programs, or as graduate non-degree students.
Exceptions to the Graduate Academic Regulations from the Office of Graduate Studies must be submitted using this form. A copy of the student's transcript MUST be included unless instructed otherwise. Petitions must be emailed from the American University account of the Associate Dean in the appropriate academic unit. Please submit petitions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
