Scholastic Standing

Academic Warning, Probation, and Dismissal

Each semester, the Scholastic Standing Committee reviews the scholastic record of all enrolled students and makes recommendations to the director for warning, probationary status, or dismissal of students in academic difficulty. The director notifies the student in writing of any action taken. Students who receive a grade of C or C+ in any course taken to satisfy degree requirements are notified in writing that no more than 6 credits bearing a grade of C or C+ may be counted toward the degree. Students earning 9 credits (or three courses) or more with a grade of C+ or below are dismissed from the program.

Student Appeals

Student appeals of decisions of the Scholastic Standing Committee, or student grievances related to academic matters, must be presented in writing to the director of the graduate program within one month of the decision(s). Acceptable grounds for appeal are (1) technical error and/or (2) new information and/or (3) extenuating circumstances. Students are allowed to meet with the committee and are permitted to be represented by an adviser from within the university community. In consultation with the Scholastic Standing Committee and all parties to the dispute, the director proposes a resolution of the matter. If this is unsuccessful, the matter is placed before the membership of the graduate program faculty for its decision. While such faculty action usually is final, a student may appeal to the Graduate School-Camden in cases where he or she is dissatisfied with the resolution arrived at in the program.

Student Complaints about Grades

A student with a complaint about a grade must submit the complaint in writing to the course instructor within one week of the receipt of the grade. In the event of an unsatisfactory resolution of the problem, the student may appeal to the graduate program director, or designee selected by the graduate program, whose decision is final. Such appeal must be made in writing, no later than one week following the date of unsatisfactory resolution.
