Academic Forms

Exceeded Hours Appeal Form

To be completed by students taking over 19 hours (including seminar) during their 1st , 2nd, & 3rd semesters or for seniors taking over 18 hours of coursework in their last semester.

STEM Course Approval Form

Courses outside of Ogden College of Science & Engineering may be approved as a STEM Elective on a case-by-case basis providing content is sufficiently linked to a core math and/or science principle.

Fifth Week Assessment Form

Conducted during the 5th week of each semester. Students are asked to take this form to all instructors for their 200 level and above courses. Dates of assessment will be provided via email from the Coordinator for Academic Services.

College Forms

College Visit Absence Form

All college-related visits should be planned during weekends, summers, university holidays, and university breaks whenever possible.

Sometimes obligatory college tours, interviews, scholar days, or orientation days will inevitably fall on days when classes meet. If such visits will result in absence from any class, Gatton Academy students must have their absences approved in advance by the Coordinator of Academic Services.

At least one week before missing class/es, please fill out the web form below. A letter will be generated in the Gatton Academy's office. You will be notified by e-mail when your letter is ready to pick up. You will then pick up and present your letter to all professors in advance of missing their class.

All students should work ahead to make-up any missed assignments, quizzes, exams, etc. before the absence from class occurs. Students with excessive absences may not be approved to miss additional classes. Academic standing will be considered before approval. Approved absences within this policy do not accumulate in the Gatton Academy Classroom Intervention Program.

Research Forms

Research Contract

To be signed by Gatton Academy students and their research mentor at the onset of each semester of a student's research experience. Completed forms should be turned in to Derick Strode, Assistant Director, Academic Services.
