Request for Exception

Any student wishing to request an exception to a scholarship requirement may submit a Scholarship Request for Exception form. These requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and may be either approved or denied. The University Scholarship Policy (No. 254) states that the Appeals Committee has up to 30 calendar days to return a decision, although the typical turnaround time is one to two weeks.

Major Illness of Student

Any request for exception citing major illness (of disability) of the student will require the student to have registered their illness or disability with the Accessible Education Center. To protect your privacy, the Scholarship Office cannot directly accept a student's medical documentation. We will defer to the judgment of the Accessible Education Center to determine whether the requested exception constitutes a reasonable accommodation.
