All students are responsible for adhering to UAB’s academic policies, as published in the UAB Undergraduate Catalog. The Provost may make exceptions to policies. Exceptions will only be made in extraordinary circumstances. Students may qualify under this policy only in cases of serious illness, which precludes a student from attending classes, or a call to active military service. In such instances, students requesting an exception to policy must provide the cause-specific documentation in order for the request to be considered. Students are not eligible for exceptions after the student has graduated from UAB.
