Academic Policies and Procedures Addendums

The revised degree information that follow, supersede the degree information listed in the departmental sections of the printed and online versions of the catalog.

Probation and Dismissal Addendum

Academic Appeal Addendum

Each student has the right of academic appeal, the right to submit evidence and the right to have that evidence considered. The person, committee or body considering the appeal (at each stage of the appeal process) is to consider the student's evidence alongside any evidence submitted by other interested parties and is to notify the student, in writing, of its decision and the basis for its decision.

For academic matters, the process normally begins with the faculty member involved, if appropriate. All other appeals (and all academic appeals that were denied by the initial appeal to the faculty member involved) go to the department or program and then to the Graduate Academic Council. For nonacademic matters, students should first discuss the matter with the head of the appropriate department (facilities management, business office, etc.) with appeals to the appropriate supervisor. For matters concerning disabled student services, students should contact the director of the Office of Disability Services at (714) 744–7971.

Grade Review Policy Addendum

Professors, as experts in their fields, have the final authority in assigning student grades, except for cases involving clear evidence of capricious grading or failure to follow the professional standards of the discipline.

Faculty members may change final grades after submission to the Office of the University Registrar only for clerical error. Furthermore, additional work may not be assigned to enable the student to receive a higher grade.

However, a student who believes that he or she has received a grade based on capricious or unprofessional grading may appeal personally to the instructor for an explanation of the grade and for possible reconsideration. Students have a right to submit evidence in conjunction with the appeal and the instructor is to consider all evidence submitted. As a professional scholar and educator, the instructor should be able to explain the grading criteria, how the criteria meet the standards of the discipline and how the individual student’s grade derives from these criteria.

If, after consulting with the instructor, the grade dispute is not resolved or if the student has made a good faith effort to contact the instructor and has received no response, the student has a right to appeal directly to the department chair of the academic unit in which the course was offered (or the associate dean if there is no department chair).

All grade appeals must be filed in writing within 30 days from the date that the grade was assigned. Students have a right to submit evidence in conjunction with the appeal, and interested parties, including the grading instructor, shall also submit any evidence, all of which will be reviewed and considered in the appeal. The department chair may deny the student petition, confer directly with the instructor of record in the course to resolve the dispute, form a faculty committee to review the grade or refer the petition to the dean's office of the school or college of the department. The student shall be notified in writing of the decision and the basis for the decision.

If the grade dispute is decided unfavorably for the student at the departmental level, the student has a right to further appeal the decision directly to the dean's office, to submit evidence and to have that evidence considered alongside any evidence submitted by the instructor. The dean's office will make the final college–level decision on the petition and notify the student, in writing, of the decision and the basis for the decision. (If the student's initial appeal was to the associate dean (because there is no department chair), the student may not bring a subsequent appeal to the office of the dean. Rather, the decision of the associate dean will be final.)

After the dean's office notifies the student of its decision, the student has two weeks to request a review by the Graduate Academic Council. Such a request may be made only if compelling new evidence appears or if there is substantive evidence that the petition process was not followed in accordance with the grade challenge policy. The Graduate Academic Council will consider all evidence submitted (by the student and other interested parties) and render a final decision. There is no additional process of appeal.

Changes in grades may occur only through the petition process initiated by an individual student. Any newly assigned grades will be recorded in the student's official record.
