All graduate students have the right to appeal academic decisions. An appeal is a request that an academic decision (e.g., a grade or standing in a program) be changed, based on the evidence supplied by the student or that a regulation be waived on compassionate grounds or because of extenuating circumstances.
Brock's academic appeals procedures are detailed in the Graduate Calendar. As a general guideline, however, students must first discuss the matter in dispute with the instructor (if applicable). If not satisfied, the student may then appeal to the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and Research for the Goodman School of Business, followed by the Dean of Graduate Studies and, finally, the Student Appeals Board.
