Petitioning for Exception to Deadlines and Rules

The petition process is designed to provide students who experience unavoidable, extenuating circumstances, the opportunity to waive a University policy that, if enforced, would result in unsatisfactory academic progress or financial consequences. A committee of Continuing Education staff reviews petitions on a regular basis. For more information, please contact the petition coordinator at or 303-492-9511.

Students also have the right to appeal to the Dean of Continuing Education any decision made by the petition committee. Contact the Division’s enrollment services staff for more information.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search Buff Portal and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
