Variant Procedure Policy

All Quinnipiac University academic policies and requirements are designed to maintain the standards of academic quality and to promote student learning. Students and faculty are bound by the policies and requirements outlined in this catalog. However, individual circumstances may warrant a student to petition to be exempted or granted a variance from a particular policy or requirement. This petition should be stated briefly on a Variant Procedure Form by the student. It is strongly recommended that the variant form be accompanied by a letter of explanation and supportive documentation.

Variant Procedure Form must be examined and signed in turn by the department chair or program director, academic dean of the student’s home school/college (or designee) and the vice president for academic innovation and effectiveness.
