Grade Forgiveness Petition
The University’s Grade Forgiveness Rule allows a student to petition to repeat up to three courses for which the grade in the repeated course will permanently replace the original grade for the course in the calculation of a student’s cumulative GPA. The petition should be submitted once you register for a second attempt in a course. Students who passed the course the first time and fail it the second will lose credit for the course. Both courses remain on the academic record. Coursework taken outside of The Ohio State University, including EM and transfer credit, is not counted as an attempt for teh purposes of the grade forgiveness rule.
Deadline: 4th Friday of the semester

Curriculum Petition
A curriculum petition is required when a student wishes to pursue an adjustment to an approved curriculum. Examples include: applying unused credit toward a GE or major requirement; application of  Special (S000) credit to GE or major requirements; substitution or modification of a requirement within the standard GE or degree requirements.
Deadline: Course petitions may be submitted at any time.

Independent Study Request Form
Independent studies are designed for students who wish to explore topics or subject matter not already covered in another upper-level course. (1) Consider and outline your proposed topic and research interests. (2) Consult with faculty to determine who is able to direct your independent study. It is important to define the details of your proposal and come to a clear agreement on the topic, scope, expected deliverables, due dates and meeting patterns. (3) Both the faculty and student must agree, in writing, to the independent study proposal and the faculty member determines the number of credit hours that the work justifies. (4) The student will submit the Independent Study Request Form, including the agreed-upon proposal, a listing of any required assignments or projects and expectations, and agreed-upon number of credit hours. (4) After submission by the student, the faculty member receives a copy of the request and will forward the request with his/her approval to Knowlton School Student Services in order for the course (ARCH 4193, LARCH 4193, or CRPLAN 4193) to be added to the student's schedule.
