Frequently Asked Questions
It is important to explain with sufficient detail why you are requesting an exception to the College’s deadline, including the timeframe of the extenuating circumstance. Your statement must reference the documentation you attach to the PED form. The personal statement must fit in the space provided.
Additional statements attached on a separate piece of paper due to space limitations will not be considered.
A PED request must be submitted no later than one quarter following the end of the quarter which you are contesting. Additionally, you must be able to provide documentation to substantiate the extenuating circumstances to justify approval of your PED request. If both of these requirements are not met, you would not be eligible to submit a PED.
However, you may be eligible to submit a Satisfactory Academic Progress petition to regain Financial Aid eligibility. For more information, please visit Hawk Central or call Financial Aid at 509-542-5504.
Because the PED committee is only able to review circumstances that fit the exception categories listed on the petition, faculty complaints are not eligible for PED review. Please visit the Student Complaint Process to learn more about your options.
