A student is subject to the requirements in place for the catalogue year in which s/he entered UVM as a matriculating degree student, which may not be the current catalogue. Remember to check the catalogue archives link for the appropriate catalogue year. The student handbook you received during Orientation or transfer into the School of Business also lists the academic requirements for that class year.
All petitions to the Undergraduate Studies Committee need to be made in writing using the form below. A student who plans to petition the Undergraduate Studies Committee should meet with his/her faculty advisor or an advisor in Student Services prior to sending the petition. There are certain circumstances where a petition may not be needed and other situations where a requirement cannot be waived by the Undergraduate Studies Committee.
The Committee meets on a bi-monthly basis during the academic year. There are no scheduled meetings during the summer months.
