2.1 - Academic Appeals Policy and Procedure

The Academic Appeals Policy provides students with an appeal mechanism by which they can request a hearing before an Academic Appeals Board for appeals related to:  an academic evaluation in a course; a thesis or dissertation defense, a general or comprehensive exam, suspension or dismissal under the Student Professional Behavior in an Academic Program Policy, and academic program-related decisions resulting in the student being dismissed from a program or being required to repeat a semester or year.

The sole basis for an appeal is an alleged prejudiced or capricious evaluation or decision.  The policy and procedures regarding academic appeals are detailed in the Faculty Handbook.  (Appendix C)
