Academic Appeals

All appeals of evaluation wording and credit are governed by the college’s policy on Amending Student Records, which in turn is governed by the Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). A copy of the policy can be obtained from the academic deans. Specifically, review by an academic dean is restricted to items of fact, and a student does not have a right to a hearing with an academic dean regarding a disagreement with the faculty member’s judgment about the quality of work or award of credit.
