In accordance with Tarleton State University policy, the College of Business Administration hereby adopts the following as its procedure for academic appeals.
Each student encountering a grievance, academic in nature, will first attempt to resolve the problem with the faculty member of record for the course in question according to the process identified in the Tarleton State University catalog. If the student fails to satisfactorily resolve the academic grievance with the faculty member, the student will have the right to appeal his/her grievance to the Department Head responsible for the course. The appeal must be in writing, setting forth in detail the nature of the grievance. If the student elects to appeal to the Department Head, the appeal must be presented within 30 days of the originating event. For an appeal of a course grade, the originating event shall be considered to be the posting of the grade to the university record. For appeal of an individual exam, project, assignment, or score, the originating event shall be considered to be the date the student receives his or her grade for that exam, project or assignment.
