Virtual Office Information
Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics
Welcome! In the event that our office is not accessible, we ask that you refer to the resources below:
I need a form:
- Undergraduate Forms
- Undergraduate Procedures & Changes for Spring 2021 (see for details on form submission procedures; contact Lauren Kemp with any questions)
- Master’s, Ph.D. and IPD Students: To submit a graduate-level academic program request, please use the appropriate form for your program below. For example, you would submit this form if you would like approval to take a math course that is not on the pre-approved list.
- MEAM MSE Departmental Request Form
- Ph.D. Departmental Request Form
- IPD Academic Request form
- More Forms for Graduate Students (LOA, Request for a letter, Transfer Credit) can be found here.
- If you don’t know which form to use you can send and email to Maryeileen Griffith to ask about Ph.D. or IPD or to Peter Litt to ask about the MEAM MSE.
Please know that some petitions may need to be submitted to the School of Engineering and Applied Science for School-level approval. The decision will be sent to you via e-mail and you will also be notified if your petition needs the School-level approval. For example, if you want to take a leave of absence, you would use the School of Engineering’s “Leave of Absence Request” and then it will be sent to the department for approval.
