Undergraduate Forms and Petitions
Students may encounter a time where they will be asked to receive an approval for a particular situation by submitting a petition. Some common petitions are: request a substitution of courses, permission to repeat a course, a special request of the Core Committee, an extension of time to complete coursework, or to request a major course substitution.
The petition request form is located on the Student profile page. Click on the Ellucian waffle icon in the upper left corner. Choose Undergrad Academic petition form from the dropdown menu and the specific reason you want to petition for. If you choose "other", please indicate what specifically you need approval on.
Declare or Remove a Business, Economics or Leadership Development Minor
Adding a minor to your academic profile enhances the educational experience. Once the form is complete, your Student Profile will be updated when the form is reviewed and approved. The form to declare your major, minor or concentration is now found in your Student Profile account. The location of this form is found by clicking on the Ellucian waffle icon in the upper left corner.
If you are changing your minor, a remove major, minor or concentration form, found on the register website, will be necessary. Don't forget to forward the confirmation email to the appropriate department (Boler@jcu.edu) as the form indicates. The second step is important to complete this process.
Change of Major
Have you already declared a major and decided to pursue a different major in the business school? If you are already admitted to the Business College this form is to be completed through your Student Profile using the waffle icon next to Ellucian in the upper left hand corner. Remember to remove your old major first or the process will not be completed. A remove major, minor or concentration form, found on the register website, will be necessary. Don't forget to forward the confirmation email to the appropriate department (Boler@jcu.edu) as the form indicates. The second step is important to complete this process.
If you are joining us from the School of Arts & Sciences, you must first fill out a form to request a Change of Academic Advisor. A Boler advisor will be able to work with you to make sure you meet the requirements to be admitted in the Boler College of Business. You will also need to declare your major. Students with less than 45 credit hours will need to fill out a Change of Academic Interest form or for those students who have more than 45 credit hours can declare their major through their Student Profile.
Pre-Major Update Form
Considering another major and you have less than 45 credit hours? At JCU, students cannot declare a major until they reach 45 credit hours. However, that does not mean you should not be thinking about which major you would like to pursue. This form is for students who have not yet declared a major, but already have the major in mind they would like to pursue. Filling out this form will ensure JCU understands your most current academic interests and allows us to ensure you have an advisor in the correct discipline. Students can request a Boler advisor by using the Change of Academic Advisor form to request a new advisor.
Student Academic for Pass/Fail Option Form
Want to register for a pass/fail course this semester? You may not register for more than one pass/fail course per semester and may not use the pass/fail option for any course counted toward the university core requirements or in a major sequence, optional minor, or concentration. Business majors may not use the pass/fail option for any Business core courses. The course that you select for pass/fail will be applied only toward general electives.
Want to take a summer course closer to home? Students may continue their education over summer break closer to home. If you want to take a course elsewhere, you will need a course description from the school where you wish to take the course in order to receive permission. This course information allows for the JCU equivalency to be determined. Upon completion of the course, you must have the transcript sent to the Registrar at John Carroll University. All courses taken elsewhere must have a C or better to transfer to JCU.
