Students may attempt to petition the Global Studies Advisory Committee for special approval of a student’s study abroad plans. Students may petition to participate in a course or program that is not offered through St. Kate’s or it’s affiliate programs but must have a reason as to why the program is unique from others offered and best suits their needs as students. If you are interested in learning more about petitioning email Global Studies.
