Internal College of Education Petition

Petitions to be allowed to deviate from institutional policies require submission of an Idaho State University Undergraduate Student Petition and appropriate supporting documentation (See the Petition Policies stated elsewhere in the Course Catalog). Petitions to be allowed to deviate from College of Education policies and requirements require submission of an Internal College of Education Petition with supporting documentation. Internal petitions are initiated with an advisor or course instructor on forms available online and the Advising Center. For petitions involving teacher education requirements, an Education Advisor from the Advising Center will review the petition, provide a recommendation, and sign the petition. Petitions also require the signature and the recommendation of the appropriate program major advisor, program coordinator, or department chair. Internal petitions are approved or denied by the Associate Dean (or Dean) of the College of Education. A copy of the petition is retained by the College of Education in the candidate's official file. If additional action is required, approved petitions are advanced to the Registrar's Office.
