Graduate Students

  • Graduate Student Advocate
    Assists individual graduate students or graduate student groups involved in a dispute with the University including, but not limited to, student conduct, university grievances, and graduate appeals procedures.

  • Graduate Appeals Procedure 

    Used by graduate students, other than Juris Doctor candidates, with complaints about dismissal from graduate standing, placement on probationary status, denial of readmission, and other administrative or academic decisions that terminate or otherwise impede progress toward academic or professional degree goals. For graduate students, this procedure may also be used to resolve disputes over joint authorship of research in accordance with joint authorship policies of campus departments or units.

    Students must initiate an appeal at the unit level (e.g., school, department, graduate group) at which the disputed action took place within 30 days from the time at which the student knew or could reasonably be expected to have known of the action being appealed.

  • Non-Senate Academic Employee Grievance Procedure 
    Resolves complaints about dismissal from graduate standing, placement on probationary status, denial of readmission to the same program (if the student was previously in good standing), disputes over joint authorship of research in accordance with joint authorship policies of campus departments or units, and other administrative or academic decisions that terminate or otherwise impede progress toward academic or professional degree goals.

  • Graduate Student Assembly 
    Provides assistance for a broad variety of problems, including conduct violations, grade disputes, enrollment issues, financial aid problems, establishment of residency, discrimination, and harassment.
