  Graduate School-New Brunswick 2005-2007 Academic Policies and Procedures Academic Standing Due Process  

Due Process

Students are entitled to fairness in the way their academic performances are assessed. Each program has a statement that spells out how a student's academic progress is monitored and how comprehensive, qualifying, and final examinations are graded. Each program also has a procedure for academic appeals. The Graduate School-New Brunswick provides a further opportunity for appeal for students who wish to proceed beyond the program level (see below).

All students in the Graduate School-New Brunswick are entitled to expect that regularly scheduled examinations will be graded and grades announced within two weeks of completion of those examinations by the students. If a student fails a comprehensive, qualifying, or final (defense) examination, he or she is entitled to an explanation of the reasons for that decision.
