Scholastic Standing

Academic Warning, Probation, and Dismissal

Each semester the Program Committee reviews the scholastic record of all enrolled students and makes decisions regarding warnings, probationary status, or dismissal of students in academic difficulty. The graduate program director notifies students of any action taken. Students who receive a grade lower than a B in more than two courses taken in the program may be dismissed from the program. No more than two grades below B may be counted toward the M.A.L.S. degree.

Student Appeals

Student appeals of decisions made by the Program 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 other members of the committee and all parties of the dispute, the graduate program director proposes a resolution to the matter. While such action usually is final, a student may appeal to the dean of the Graduate School-Camden in cases where he or she is dissatisfied with the resolution.


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 Program Committee, whose decision is final. Such appeal must be made, in writing, no later than one week following the date of unsatisfactory resolution.

Other Complaints or Problems with the Graduate Liberal Studies Program
