Senate Appeals on Academic Standing

Students may protest decisions relating to their academic standing. Students should protest a decision first with the faculty member directly involved in the decision, if applicable, and then, if necessary, with the graduate advisor or department head, and finally with the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

The Committee on Appeals on Academic Standing is a standing committee of the University Senate, which is the senior academic authority in the University. Information on the policies and procedures of this committee can be found at Senate Appeals on Academic Standing.
