Petitions are denied if they lack appropriate documentation, or if the Committee does not feel the situation meets the criteria outlined for granting a Hardship Withdrawal.
Some examples would include petitions:
NOTE: International students should meet with an adviser from the International Student Services (ISS) office to be apprised of any potential F1 Visa violation due to withdrawn courses.
The Hardship Withdrawal Committee will review an appeal of a denied petition if additional materials that were not previously submitted and are germane to the hardship and specific quarter under petition are provided within 90 days of the notification of the initial petition's denial.
Documents can be sent via email as attachments to: email@example.com, faxed to 206-685-3660, or dropped off in Schmitz Hall 209.
A Hardship Petition that has been denied may be appealed (see previous FAQ).
However, if a Hardship Petition was denied and the appeal was denied as well, the student may NOT re-petition for that quarter.
