Grade and Academic Action Hearings: Appealing any academic decision made by a dean involves a hearing that will be scheduled by the Academic Appeals Chair. At the hearing, the appealing student, faculty, department chair, and the dean are invited to present evidence regarding the academic decision. To overturn a dean’s decision, the committee must find the dean’s decision to be arbitrary and capricious.
Graduation and General Education Requirement Procedures: The Academic Appeals Committee meets once each month, September through May. The Academic Appeals Committee will review submitted appeals at the next scheduled meeting after receipt, and deliberate.
