The University Appeals Board

Members of the University Appeals Board are appointed by the President of the University, with student members being recommended by the legislative branch of the Student Government Association. The Appeals Board consists of a pool of eighteen faculty members and twelve students, and a Hearing Officer who shall be the chair. They are charged with hearing grade appeals, academic offense appeals, and disciplinary matters. The Appeals Board is the only entity on campus that can modify a grade.
