Procedures for Appealing Faculty Decisions

You are here

Any student may appeal any decision made by the faculty as to:

  • academic standing
  • non-acceptance of an M.A. qualifying paper
  • non-acceptance of performance on the Ph.D. comprehensive examinations
  • non-acceptance of a Ph.D. dissertation

by requesting the Head of Art History, with the advice of the Art History Faculty, to appoint an appeals committee of six members composed of four faculty members (two from fields not involved) and two students (from the fields involved) whose names are selected by the Art History Society. The membership of this committee must be acceptable to the student who is making the appeal. This committee addresses itself only to answering the question of whether or not the procedures as established by the School of Art and Art History and published in its Structures and Procedures Manual have been adhered to correctly.
