Departmental and University Appeals Process


Appeal Procedures

March 19, 2013 the Graduate Council approved new appeal procedures. The purpose of this procedure is to afford UCR graduate students an opportunity to resolve complaints involving academic or administrative decisions that interfere with the graduate student’s academic progress, such as adverse outcomes on qualifying exams, dismissal from graduate standing, placement on probationary status, denial of readmission to the same program (if the student was previously in good standing), disputes over joint authorship of research in accordance with joint authorship policies of campus departments or units, revocation of campus fellowships, and other administrative or academic decisions that terminate or otherwise impede progress toward academic or professional degree goals.  The Departmental Appeal Procedures apply to all departments.  Once those have been exhausted the University Appeal Procedures should be followed. To petition the Graduate Appeal Form should be completed.
