File Request Forms

  • File Material Request: Use this form to request copies of material in your student file.

    While students may request copies of transcripts in their student files, please be aware of the following:

    • Outside agencies requesting transcripts (e.g., employers, other grad programs) usually require official transcripts directly from the issuing institution.
    • Copies of transcripts in your file will be marked "COPY" before being released.
    • Especially for U.S. schools, students should request official copies of transcripts directly from the issuing institution to avoid these concerns. 
  • University of Michigan Transcripts: Electronic copies of your Official University of Michigan transcript can be ordered, free of charge, via Wolverine Access.

Petitioning an Academic Policy

Ross policies are established by the Ross faculty as standards for the entire student population. In rare cases, students will sometimes request consideration for an exception to policy if their unique situation or extenuating circumstance may warrant a policy exception. Each request for an exception is reviewed on its own merit, yet uses guidelines to ensure equity and consistency in the decision process. Students must schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor prior to submitting a petition to the Ross Academic Standards Committee to discuss the concern.  
 

ROSS ACADEMIC STANDARDS COMMITTEE
The Ross Academic Standards Committee is made up of Directors from Academic Services, the Office of Undergraduate Programs or MBA Program Office, and Academic Advising. The committee reviews petitions related to academic policies, as well as requests for leaves of absence from the program. Students should always discuss their concern or request in person with their Academic Advisor prior to submitting a petition to the committee. Petitions should be thoughtful and well documented; additional information or documentation may be requested as needed. During the Fall and Winter semesters, petitions will be reviewed within 5-10 business days
