Appeals and Exceptions

These pages describe how to address unusual circumstances of various kinds:

  • Graduate students who encounter difficulties beyond their control may request certain reasonable exceptions to Graduate School policies.
  • Graduate students may choose to appeal academic decisions such as their grades or scholastic standing; specific procedures and timelines are required.
  • Graduate Assistants may file grievances (PDF) related to conditions of employment; this process is facilitated by the Labor Relations Coordinator and overseen by the Office of the Provost.
