Petitions and Academic Review

In cases of unusual circumstances where specific regulations do not seem to be in the best interest of a student’s academic program, provision for review has been established through a faculty committee on student petitions. This committee has the authority to review matters pertaining to academic progress and to recommend exceptions concerning any academic regulation if such seems to be in the best interest of the student and of the college.

Petition forms pertinent to academic progress and/or academic regulations are available in the Enrollment Services Center at the Ocala and Citrus campuses and the Administrative Office at the Levy Center. These forms are to be used by any student who, after discussion with the assigned advisor or counselor, believes that special circumstances govern the situation.

The college has established and published in the Student Handbook, a policy for hearing and settling of student grievances. Any student who feels he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, age, marital status, or disability in the application of any policy or procedure of College of Central Florida should contact the office of the vice president for Student Affairs to file a letter of grievance.
