Petitions

Under exceptional circumstances, a student may petition for a substitution to the KU Core. The petition is reviewed by the University Core Curriculum Committee. Lack of knowledge of KU Core requirements, either on part of student and/or through misadvisement, is not an extraordinary circumstance for a petition to be considered.

The petition form must be submitted electronically.  Please review the form and gather the required information and attachments before beginning to complete the form.
