Petition to Deviate from Approved BME Track or Sequence Courses
With good reason, students may petition to substitute technical courses not listed by the approved curriculum for a BME track or sequence. The petition should be submitted to the BME Undergraduate Education Committee (UGEC) for approval. Before submitting a petition to the UGEC, students must discuss the petition and present it in writing to their faculty advisor for review and recommendation.
Conditions requiring a petition: A petition is required to substitute a course for a technical elective not listed for the track or sequence or to substitute a course from another university for a BME core course.
- Download the petition form and include the following information:
- Your name
- Your expected date of graduation, sequence or track
- Clear and succinct description of the requested change.
- For example, “I wish to take xxx as a technical elective.”
- Rationale for the request. Explain why this change is appropriate from an educational standpoint and relevant to your track or sequence.
- Catalog description and/or course syllabi.
- Attach a complete Program of Study listing all the courses taken and will take until graduation (organized by semester). Clearly identify the technical electives.
- Export to PDF file (include name and date in the file name)
- Email to Andrew Rollins, Chair of the UGEC (email@example.com) with the following:
- Subject line: 'Petition for UGEC'
- CC your advisor
- Include the track leader identified on the BME Curriculum page
Note: A petition for a change that the UGEC chair regards as problematic will be voted upon by the UGEC. Otherwise, the track leader can approve the change. The UGEC meets about twice a month during the academic year (September-April) and will not normally consider petitions over the summer.
