Spring 2016 Petition Course Signup on WebAdvising
If a course is a “petition” course (indicated by a “Y” in the Petition column on the course listing), interested students must FIRST request a petition online.
Petition Request Days: Saturday, February 13th - Tuesday, February 16th
Log in to https://webadvising.union.edu and access the STUDENT menu.
In the area marked “Why do you want or need this course,” please add any comments that will assist the department in determining your eligibility for the course. Click “Submit” at the bottom of the page to complete your petition course requests.
Note: You can add, delete or modify petitions through Tuesday, February 16th. After this date, you will have to contact the department administrative assistant directly if you need to modify your requests.
Petition Acceptance Days – Tuesday, February 23rd- Thursday, February 25th
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. If you plan on registering for the course, you must change the status from “Faculty Approved” to “Accepted by Student.”
PLEASE NOTE: Changing the status does not automatically register you for the course. YOU STILL NEED TO REGISTER FOR THE COURSE IN WEBADVISING beginning at 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 Friday, March 4th 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.
