 Students who foresee that attending 20 Chapels in the course of a semester may be impossible due to life/work obligations may file a Chapel Petition at the beginning of each semester. The Chapel Petition is available during the first two weeks of each semester.  Forms submitted after the deadline will be accepted up to halfway up through the semester for a $25 late fee.  Please contact cmpetitions@jessup.edu for more information or to request permission to submit a late form.

If approved, students may be allowed to complete a number of Chapels virtually by watching chapel videos from the current semester on their own time and completing a quiz or writing a 2-page virtual Chapel paper for each.

Approved petitions are valid only for the term in which it was requested. A new petition must be submitted for each term.


Before You Begin:

If you are requesting a Chapel accommodation due to work, internship, or student teaching responsibilities, you will need to complete and attach one of the following forms. Please download the form, complete it, and scan it to upload on Page 3 of the Chapel Petition. Please complete a form for each situation that applies to you. This form itself is NOT the Alternate Chapel Petition. It needs to be attached to the online petition below.

Work Schedule Form  |  Internship Schedule Form   |  Student Teaching Observation Form

If you do not receive a confirmation email upon submitting your Chapel Petition, our office did not receive it. Please make sure that you received a confirmation email to ensure that your petition successfully went through.


Fall 2020 Important Note

Please read through the Campus Ministries Return to Campus Action Plan before submitting a Chapel Petition. If in a Yellow or Red Phase, Chapels requirements are reduced to 10 Chapels total and can be completed entirely online. Petitions will only be given in very specific and extreme circumstances.


The Chapel Petition is now closed. If you wish to submit a late form, you can do so up to halfway through the semester (Sunday, October 18, 2020) for a $25 late fee. Please email cmpetitions@jessup.edu for access to the late form.
