How to gather information from your instructor and/or advisor

The instructor feedback form is a critical part of the petition process. It should be attained prior to submitting the academic petition application and attached as a supporting document with your petition. Petitions requiring the instructor feedback form include:

  • auditing a course
  • change a letter grade to P/F

How to successfully obtain the instructor feedback form

The form is password protected, therefore, the instructor will be required to log in with their WSU Network ID and password. Once the instructor has filled out and submitted the form, it will be sent to your WSU email address as a html noreply document. This is the document that you will need to attach with your petition as a support.
