Registration and Records

The following procedure is to be used by persons who have a grievance concerning academic actions:

  • A grievance concerning an academic action should be presented to the course/program instructor in writing. An answer in writing will be provided within ten (10) working or school days. Absent extraordinary circumstances, the appeal must be filed within two weeks from the date the student learned or reasonably should have learned of the grade or other action.
  • If the consultation with the instructor does not resolve the appeal, a student may appeal to the academic dean by filing a written request for review. Absent extraordinary circumstances, this request for review must be filed within twenty business days from the date the student learned or reasonably should have learned of the grade or other action.
  • If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the academic dean, the student may file an appeal in writing to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Absent extraordinary circumstances, this request for review must be filed within thirty days from the date the student learned or reasonably should have learned of the grade or other action.
  • The decision of the Vice President for Academic Affairs shall be final.
