All art history majors must meet with the Art History Director of Undergraduate Studies to approve this form before submitting it to the Registrar. Please have a draft of the form (filled out in pencil) ready when you meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and please be sure to bring a copy of your transcript/Degree Progress Report.

Please refer to the Weinberg graduation petition information page or the registrar graduation page.
