University-level/Academic Conduct Committee
If the student feels that resolution of the appeal was not successful, the dean will then refer the case to the Academic Conduct Committee for a hearing within 10 working days. The Academic Conduct Committee has jurisdiction in two kinds of cases:
(1). a case in which a student has accused a faculty member of violating stated course grading policies.
(2). a case in which a student has reason to believe that an error has been made in computing or recording his or her grade for a particular assignment or for the course. The committee will not hear cases in which a student simply feels that he or she has received unfair treatment.
Powers : The committee will be limited to recommending that a given grade remain unchanged, be changed to a different grade or be changed to a zero (for a particular assignment). The recommendation will be based on a majority decision of the five voting members. Copies of the recommendation will be forwarded to the student(s), department chair and academic dean. Protecting the anonymity of the parties involved, the committee will submit reports to Academic Council or to the Graduate Council; these reports will be forwarded upon request to Faculty Conference and to the Council of Student Leaders. Records of all committee hearings and actions will be kept for no more than one year.
