Graduate Student Academic Grievance Policy Statement

Policy Number: 3364-77-02

The graduate student grievance policy covers appeals in which a graduate student disputes (grieves) a particular grade. Appeals dealing with academic dishonesty, including, but not limited to, cheating and plagiarism, are explicitly exempt from this process and shall be dealt with under the procedures outlined in the Graduate Academic Dishonesty Appeal Policy (3364-77-01). The purpose of the policy is to provide graduate students and their colleges with the procedures to follow to grieve a particular grade after appeals within their respective college are exhausted. This policy grants the graduate student the right to appeal in writing to the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies for further and final consideration of the student's appeal.
