Academic Appeals Committee

The Academic Appeals Committee serves as the appeals body for

(1) the administration of the Admissions and Retention Policies of the University,

(2) the consideration of exceptions or substitutions in academic areas which are not specifically reserved to a specific academic department or area, and

(3) the consideration of any other matters associated with policies and procedures governing academic appeals.

The responsibility for academic evaluations of students rests with the faculty.  If a student feels wrongfully and unfairly treated by an instructor and if he/she is unable to resolve the matter in conference with the instructor or the Departmental Chair, an appeal may be made.

Membership:

Faculty:  Four elected at large by the Faculty

Students:  Three appointed by the Vice President for Student Services as recommended by the Student Government Association President.

Administrators: Registrar (ex-officio, non-voting); Administrative support: one appointed by the President (non-voting).
