- A student who wishes to appeal a decision of a faculty member or staff member of the department should ask for a review by that person within 60 days of the originating event. The person is expected to give the student a response within 30 days. If the person is unavailable, if a response is not made within 30 days, or if the student is unsatisfied with the response then the student should inform the Dean of Student Success of the appeal. For an appeal of a grade the originating event shall be considered to be the posting of the grade to the university record.
- A student wishing to appeal a decision to the Dean of the Division of General Studies must do so within 120 days of the originating event by submitting a written appeal. The Dean of Student Success will review the appeal and render a decision. In addition to reviewing the written appeal, the Dean of Student Success may choose to meet with the student.
- A student unsatisfied with the decision of the dean may appeal in writing to the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs within 30 days of notification of the decision of the Dean of Student Success. The Vice President for Academic Affairs may decide that no further review is justified, may render a decision upon review, or may appoint a five-member committee to consider the appeal. The committee will consist of a faculty member from outside the involved department as chair, two other faculty members, and two student members. After hearing both sides of the grievance, the committee shall render an opinion to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, who shall render the final judgment.
