While USF Offices are limited for COVID-19, we are accepting specific types of ARC petitions electronically so that students do not miss important university deadlines. Special packets with instructions are posted below for petitions that need priority review. Please note: the e-packets are not mobile device friendly. If you have ARC questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and U# along with the specific question.
ARC General Information for CAS Majors
Petitions should be submitted as soon as possible in accordance with action requested. Late submissions require reason and documentation for the delayed request. All submitted documentation is subject to verification. Submission of false, forged or fraudulent information will result in a referral to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Fee Adjustment Requests are a separate petition and must be submitted to USF Registrar's Office.
Academic Renewal (AR)
AR is a process designed for students who were academically dismissed from USF to return and complete their USF degree. There are many important details and deadlines in this process. Links provided include a detailed process guide to help interested students in preparing for and submitting their petition. **We will begin accepting Spring 2021 petitions Sept 14.
Late Add Requests (LAR)
Students may continue to add courses through Schedule Planner/OASIS until the end of the drop/add period published for each term/session. Requests to register for classes after the first week of class must be submitted through ARC. Late Add ARC Petitions should be complete and submitted during the second week of class.
Late Withdraw Requests (LWR)
Students may withdraw from courses using OASIS through the withdraw deadline. Requests to withdraw after the withdraw deadline due to extenuating circumstances must be submitted to the ARC as soon as possible.
Withdraw Limit Exemption Requests (WLER)
Undergrads have a limited number of course withdraws at USF. Only in extenuating circumstances will approval be granted for withdraws beyond a student’s limit. Appeals for additional course withdrawals due to extenuating circumstances should be made before the semester withdraw deadline.
