Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
The "special exception" role visible in the BYU internal directory has nothing to do with whether a student has taken an increased number of credits in a given semester; neither does it mean that a student is a dependent of an active bishop or other ecclesiastical leader. It is simply something granted by the campus department (the office of IT at BYU) in order to clear up specific problems with individual netIDs. I hope this clears up your lingering doubts and endless torment caused by the thought that you either have or do not have the privilege of having been granted "special exception."
