Academic Appeals

According to the Academic Regulations and Procedures for Undergraduates Handbook, students may appeal academic decisions.  The handbook states that "if the student or the person(s) concerned is dissatisfied with the decision of the instructor's College Dean, he/she may appeal to the Provost.  The person appealing to the Provost must show justification and documentation for the appeal to be heard.  If this is done, the Provost will review all information and evidence, and if he/she wishes, refer the matter to a Committee for further investigation and recommended actions."  The committee that the Provost will refer the matter to is an ad hoc academic appeals committee.
