GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS

An undergraduate student who has questions or concerns about degree requirements or general university regulations should discuss them first with a major adviser. If students wish to review an issue or to appeal a decision, they should consult with the department or program chair and, if needed, the college dean. Should questions arise beyond this point with respect to where or to whom a specific appeal should be directed, the dean of Undergraduate Studies may be consulted for advice. After all of the informal procedures for grievances and appeals have been exhausted, the dean of Undergraduate Studies may refer unresolved issues to the university counsel who may initiate formal grievance procedures.

A graduate student who has problems arising from evaluation, advancement to candidacy, degree requirements, or general regulations should discuss them first with a graduate major adviser. If a student wishes to review a problem or to appeal a decision, s/he should then consult with the department chair, college graduate coordinator, and the college dean, in that order. Should questions arise beyond this point with respect to where or to whom a specific appeal should be directed, the dean of the Graduate Division may be consulted for advice. After all of the informal procedures for grievances and appeals have been exhausted, the dean of the Graduate Division may refer unresolved issues to the Office of the University Counsel who may initiate formal grievance procedures.
