Petition Acceptance Days – Tuesday, February 25th - Wednesday, February 26th
Log back in to https://webadvising.union.edu and select “Petition Course Management” to view the status of your petition requests. If you are approved for a petition, the status of “Faculty Approved” will appear to the right of the course.
Change the status from “Faculty Approved” to “Accepted by Student.”
REMINDER: Changing the status does not automatically register you for the course. YOU STILL NEED TO REGISTER FOR THE COURSE ON WEBADVISING during your allotted time.
Petitions that have not been approved will have a status of “Waitlisted” or “Denied.” If you have any questions about these, you need to contact the academic department directly.
If you are approved for a petition that you no longer need, please change the status to “NOT NEEDED.” Online petitions may be invalidated after Monday, March 10th, if you fail to register for the course. After that date, departments may start going to their waitlist.
If you run into any problems signing up for petition courses, please contact the administrative assistant within the specific department or the Registrar’s Office.
