University Exceptions Policy
By contract all design at the University must comply with the Standards. However, there are instances when an exception to the University Standards may be appropriate. If a project team would like an exception to the Standards to be considered, the request must be submitted in accordance with Exceptions Request Form. This form and any related documentation shall be submitted to the Project Manager. If the Project Manager allows the exception request to go forward, it will be forwarded to the Standards Exceptions Committee for consideration. Determinations on exception requests made by the Exceptions Committee are final. However, determinations by the committee can be appealed through a formal appeals process. No authority other than the Exceptions Committee can grant an exception. See the Procedures for Design section, item 4 for a more detailed description of the Exceptions Request process.
