Understanding the academic organizational structure and appropriate Chain of Command is important when resolving class-related issues. When you need problems resolved, you should start with your individual faculty member who will then help you navigate the Chain of Command shown below.
Appropriate Grounds for Appeal.
Grades are subject to appeal only when the student believes that the grade was awarded in an inequitable, arbitrary, or erroneous manner. Appropriate grounds for appeal include circumstances where the grade was assigned based on: (see UNT Policy 06.040 Grade Appeals)
a. inequitable treatment that is the result of departure from the instructor’s stated standards, and course policies; or
b. a decision based on an error in fact.
If the student believes that the grade was assigned inappropriately due to discrimination or sexual harassment, the case must first be resolved through procedures for such complaints (see UNT Policy 16.006, Information and Procedural Guidelines for Pursuing and Resolving a Complaint of Discrimination, Including Sexual Harassment). Changes in a grade due to violations of academic integrity cannot be appealed through this process.
QUALIFIED STUDENTS UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT OR SECTION 504 OF THE REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973
The College of Engineering cooperates with the Office of Disability Accommodation to make reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. If you have a disability for which you will require accommodation, please present your written accommodation request by the end of the first week and make an appointment with the instructor to discuss your needs.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the University's status as an institution of higher education. In the class setting, students shall follow their instructors’ directions and observe all academic standards and requirements published in course syllabi and other course materials. A student is responsible for responding to an academic dishonesty report issued by an instructor or other University authority. If a student fails to respond after proper attempt at notification, The University may take appropriate academic actions in the absence of the student.
