Academic Appeals Concerning the Interpretation or Application of a General Education or Major/Degree/Program Requirement:

Step 1 . The student will go first to the Chairperson. Normally, students will resolve their concerns informally at this point.

Step 2 . If the issue remains unresolved, the student may direct a written appeal, including supporting evidence, to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Vice President will investigate the matter, meeting—at his/her discretion—with those involved. Within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the student’s appeal, the Vice President will report in writing to the student his/her findings and decision. The decision of the Vice President is final even if a decision against the student will mean that the requirement under appeal will result in academic disqualification or dismissal. There is no further University appeal.
