Academic Resources

Need help?

Achieving a degree in the College of Science can be challenging. Faculty and staff are here to help you succeed!

Below are some services that are intended to empower students to succeed in their course content and develop transferable skills to help them in their academic careers.

Top 5 tips from College of Science advisors:


1. Go to class – and participate.
Class attendance actually does affect your grade. Exams are sometimes based on lectures and not chapters of the book, so it is important to be present in class. Also, instructors will sometimes make important announcements during class pertaining to assignments and exams.

2. Learn how to take notes.
The Learning Center can help you improve on note-taking strategies. Develop good study habits by reviewing your notes often, and writing down questions you have to address with the instructor.

3. Utilize a planner or electronic calendar.
Time management is critical to becoming a successful student. Write down deadlines for items that involve classes, study time, campus activities, and work obligations. Here is the University of Utah’s Academic Calendar for important dates for registration, finals, etc.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help – and don’t wait until it’s too late.
Reach out to instructors, TAs, and LAs during their office hours to get help with assignments and other issues relating to the class. Make an appointment with an advisor, and utilize the tutoring resources below!

5. Don’t give up!
We know college can be hard, and life often throws additional challenges your way. You can do this, and we are here to help.

College of Science Petitions for Exception to Policy

You must be a declared major in the College of Science to submit petitions for Exception to Policy to this college. All undecided students go through the Academic Advising Center.

The University has provided means for students to be granted exceptions to University policy. This allows students the chance to petition certain policies for non-academic reasons such as illness, military leave, family emergencies, etc.

Retroactive Petition Form (pdf)

Current Term Petition Form (pdf)

 

Exceptions to policy include withdrawal from a course after the withdrawal deadline for the same term, retroactive withdrawal, retroactive registration, section change or cross-referenced course, late registration request, change in CR/NC status, retroactive change in credit hours, etc. This must always be done through the Dean's Office of the college of the student's major.

To petition University policy you must obtain the necessary forms online, from the Registrar's office (250 SSB) or the College of Science Student Affairs Office (214 CSC). The necessary forms and all supporting documentation must be received before the Dean's Office will consider your petition. Once your forms and supporting documentation has been received it will be reviewed within 7 days and a recommendation will be sent to the Registrar's Office.
