Petitioning a Course

Students interested in petitioning a course must first speak with a Health Studies Advisor to get the petition form and discuss the process. Petitions will typically be due by mid-quarter and reviewed at the Health Studies committee meeting. No petitions will take place during summer quarter. 

As long as a student completes 45 credits at UWB, there is no limit to the amount of courses a student can petition to count towards the Health Studies major. However, submission of these petitions can only happen twice during a student’s time in the Health Studies program for courses taken previously. Students may petition an unlimited number of courses that may be taken in the future.

Final approval of petitions is ultimately up to the faculty in the Nursing and Health Studies Program.
