Student Appeals

Student Appeal Procedure

It is the purpose of the appeal procedure to provide undergraduate and graduate students and faculty with a mechanism for review of student and faculty allegations about matters pertaining to student conduct, performance and status and/or faculty misconduct. The appeal procedure shall be available to both student and faculty members of Taubman College for review of grievances of academic matters, including, but not limited to:

  • All aspects of the degree process involving grading, evaluation, or status
  • Unjustified denial of student access to data or misappropriation of student data
  • Professional misconduct toward students
  • Unfair, discriminatory, or intimidating treatment of students, including sexual intimidation and discrimination due to disability
  • Discipline or other action taken as a result of allegations or findings of student academic misconduct involving plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, falsification of records or official documents, intentional misuse of equipment or materials, and aiding and abetting the perpetration of such acts

Procedure For Appeals

STEP 1
The first step is discussion of the grievance by the student and the faculty member. It is anticipated that most disputes can be resolved without recourse to other steps.

STEP 2
If not satisfied with the outcome of this discussion, either party may request time to discuss the problem with the appropriate program chair who will informally attempt to mediate and resolve the dispute.

STEP 3
If Step 2 fails to satisfy either party, he or she may request time to discuss the problem with the dean of the college, who will informally attempt to mediate and resolve the dispute.
