Academic Grade Appeal
The duties and responsibilities of the Academic Grade Appeal Committee are set forth in the University's Academic Grade Appeal Policy and Procedure. The committee considers grade appeal cases that continue to step four in the appeal process. The committee may reach decisions by either considering evidence submitted for consideration or by holding a hearing of involved parties. The committee makes a recommendation to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Faculty members serve three year, staggered terms and are appointed by the Faculty Senate from among the tenured or tenure track faculty members. The students are appointed by the Associated Student Body (2) and Graduate Student Council (1) and may serve terms that last up to three years. Alternates will be identified for both the faculty and student committee members, for replacement of the primary members who are unavailable for various reasons, including declared conflict of interest with parties in a case. The committee is chaired by the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, serving in a non-voting capacity.
