Please see below for different student groups.

  1. On Campus Viterbi Undergraduate and Graduate students who cannot attend a class in person.
  2. Non-Viterbi students must get approval from the Viterbi academic department advisor first. Please include a pdf file of the approval from a Viterbi department advisor with your petition form.
  3. International Students
    1. Viterbi Master's International students in their final semester and enrolled in ENGR 596, ENGR 597 or ENGR 598 for CPT must have an approved CPT before we review your petition. Please register for the on-campus section until your DEN Petition is processed to avoid any registration issues and potential late registration fees.
    2. Students who are unable to continue their program in-person for Summer 2022 and need to continue their program from abroad as non-F-1 students and not in the U.S. must submit the Request for Temporary Lift of Registration Hold to OIS for review before submitting the DEN Petition. DEN petitions will be denied if the student does not submit a request to OIS to remove the hold.
    3. By submitting the DEN Petition, you are confirming that you will not enter the U.S. in the Summer 2022 semester and will take courses online via DEN@Viterbi from outside of the U.S. This does not apply to students with active SEVIS records or who have already entered the U.S. in a prior term. This only applies to students who have never entered the U.S. Your initial entry I-20 will be canceled and you will need to request an updated initial entry I-20 for Fall 2022 or whichever semester you plan to enter. DO NOT SUBMIT THE DEN PETITION if you plan to enter the U.S. in Summer 2022.
