CAS Requirements Appeal

This form is intended for students who are requesting one of the following:

* A substitution of a UNCG course in order to fulfill a specific College of Arts and Sciences Requirement

* A waiver of a specific College of Arts and Sciences requirement due to documented extenuating circumstances

All College of Arts and Sciences Appeals are evaluated by the College Appeal Committee. All decisions are final.

Strong Appeals will:

  • Explain in detail the steps the student has taken to meet the requirement as it is written. This should include all course work attempted towards the requirement and a listing of all student supports used in pursuit of the requirement eg. instructor support, tutoring, etc.
  • Explain in detail the circumstances beyond the student’s control that have blocked the successful completion of the requirement as written. 
  • Include documentation supporting the claims made in the appeal. For example, if the circumstances blocking successful completion involve a physical condition, the appeal could include a letter of support from a heath care provider familiar with the condition. If the circumstances are related to a learning difference, the appeal could include a letter of support from an expert familiar with the learning difference.

Appeals that are limited to:

Maximum Credit Hours Increase Request

The University Registrar’s Office (URO) has created a form for advisors to complete to increase maximum credit hours for their students.  The link is on the University Registrar’s Office home page under “Faculty Forms” titled “Maximum Credit Hours Increase Form.”  Once the form is completed it will take around 24-48 hours to process.


Catalog Year Language Appeal

This form is intended for students on the 2023-2024 catalog year who discussed the language/culture requirement with their advisor and then registered for a MAC Global & Intercultural course to complete the requirement, but whose Degree Works does not show the course as meeting the requirement. Appeals are evaluated by members of the College Appeals Committee and responses may take up to 4 weeks.

This form is only for students who are requesting a course substitution to fulfill their additional language requirement. If you are trying to have the requirement waived completely, or are appealing a different CAR/LEC/CIC requirement, please use the CAS Requirements Appeal form.

FERPA Waiver

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. When a student turns 18 years old or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, all rights afforded to a parent under FERPA transfer to the student. CASA advisors are therefore prohibited from sharing specific information about a student to any third party (including parents) unless the student signs a waiver form specific to our office.  We are happy to answer general questions to all regarding rules and procedures at UNCG.


Students may consent to disclose their education records by signing a waiver.
