Grade/Academic Grievance Procedures
Information regarding the Student Academic Grievance Procedures is available from Advising & Academic Services, University Hall, Room 380, 909-537-5034; information is also available on the Advising & Academic Services website.
A student may appeal a final course grade or a grade on a Comprehensive Examination or a project (e.g., art exhibition) or thesis required for graduation. An appeal may be initiated on the basis of:
- Clerical error
- Capricious or prejudicial evaluation
- Inconsistent or inequitably applied standards for evaluation
Students may also appeal other types of academic decisions. These include, but are not limited to:
- Denial of admission to or dismissal from a course, major or program
- Placement on academic probation
- Suspension or dismissal from the university
A simple allegation or unsubstantiated assertion is an insufficient basis for lodging a formal complaint. Students must support their allegations with evidence compelling enough to give the Academic Grievance Committee reason to hold a formal hearing.
