Each College follows a different process; in some Colleges the student initiates the curriculum petition; in others the academic adviser does.
When requesting that a course, which is not designated as a Foundational Studies course, meets a Foundational Studies requirement, please explicitly state how the course’s content does this. The Foundational Studies requirement is generally answered in a course syllabus.
When adviser error is the reason for why the student did not meet a Foundational Studies requirement, please say so.Please do not include statements about the student’s personal life (e.g. “has a family,” “works full-time,” “has moved out of the state of Indiana”) in the petition.
The Academic Deans of each College make the final determination on all curriculum petitions.
Note, all placement exams are in the University Testing facility located in Erickson Hall 231 on campus (812) 237-7776.
