Committee on Exceptions

The Committee on Exceptions was established to address the occasional warranted exception to policy or procedure. If you feel such an exception can be justified, you may complete and submit your request by logging into your SURF account. On the Student Center screen, in the box on the right entitled "MiraCosta Online Forms," is the link to the Committee on Exceptions online request form.

All requests for a grade change from an evaluative symbol to a "W" (Withdrawal) or No Record must be made within three years of the date when the grade was posted and initiated by the student prior to the Instructor Change of Grade Form being processed. Please note we cannot make exceptions to state or federal laws or regulations. Before you submit your petition, please read carefully the policies for required documentation and acceptable reasons for exceptions related to different requests.
