Office of the University Registrar
Record Adjustment Petition
The university recognizes that on rare occasions students will experience exceptional situations that prohibit them from completing some procedures in a timely manner. A student may petition for a record adjustment if a documented hardship occurred during the term for which the adjustment is requested, or in instances where the student will suffer significant academic hardship if the request is not granted.
A Record Adjustment Petition must be filed within a maximum of six years from the last day of instruction of the term being petitioned. No changes will be made to a student’s record once a degree has been granted.
The Record Adjustment Petition Committee meets every other week on Tuesday afternoons. For questions or inquiries regarding your petition status, please contact the Registrar's Office at 559-278-2191.
For full process and instructions, review and print our Record Adjustment Petition form located on the University Registrar forms page. All forms must be submitted after paying the $10 processing fee. See form for more details.
