IAS Course Petition Form
If a student believes that a course is relevant to their IAS concentration, but the course does not appear on the master course list for the concentration (http://ias.wustl.edu/courses), then the student may petition to add the course.

Students should consult with their IAS major advisor prior to petitioning for the course.

In order to petition, students must submit a justification (using this form) and an electronic copy of the syllabus (emailed to the Academic Coordinator, Jeremy Caddel at jcaddel@wustl.edu).

The Academic Coordinator will prepare the petition and submit it to the appropriate Concentration Coordinator for a decision. Petitions may be (1) approved for the course list (where the course is appropriate for all students in the concentration), (2) approved on an ad hoc basis (where the course is not necessarily appropriate for all students, but would further the individual student's academic focus within the major), or (3) denied.

Students will be informed of the decision via email as soon as a decision is made and all decisions are final. Please limit submissions to one course petition per form submission. If you are petitioning for multiple courses, submit each petition separately.
