University of Georgia students have the right to appeal academic decisions. Usually the appeal goes first to the unit responsible for the decision, for example, grades to the faculty members who assigned the grades; department requirements to the department; college or school requirements to the school; university requirements to the Educational Affairs Committee. An unfavorable ruling at one level can be appealed to the successive levels. A faculty decision can be appealed to the department; a department ruling can be appealed to the college in which the instructional unit is located; a college-level ruling can be appealed to the Educational Affairs Committee; the Educational Affairs Committee ruling can be appealed to the President of the University; and, except for grade appeals, the President's ruling can be appealed to the Board of Regents.
Additional details on appeals of academic matters, including special provisions for appeals in academic dishonesty cases, can be obtained from the UGA Academic Honesty site.
The Appeals tab above has a drop down menu which provides information on College of Education (COE) appeals pertaining to Grades, Admission to Undergraduate Majors, Department or College Curriculum Requirements, First Academic Dismissals, COE Appeals Procedures and Other Appeals which are handled by the UGA Educational Affairs Committee.
