Academic Complaint Committee

The Academic Complaint Committee is established to deal with student academic complaints, as provided for in the University Policy Register 4-02.3.

Before a graduate or undergraduate student pursues an academic complaint before the Director, Associate Director and Academic Complaint Committee, the student must first take the matter up with the faculty member concerned. See the procedures for informal resolution in the University Policy Register, Section 4-02.3 (F) (1).

After all the channels within the School have been exhausted, the Student Code of Conduct, the University Policy Register and the Graduate Studies Role and Status of Graduate Student Appointees document provide additional procedures to follow. Faculty members’ rights shall not be abridged in cases involving a grade change.
