THE STUDENT APPEALS COMMITTEE
The College of Health Sciences (CHS) is an instructional unit of the University of Michigan-Flint. The purpose of the Committee is to provide an avenue for appeal for any student covered under this policy, who feels she/he has been unfairly treated resulting in a perceived need for alteration of a CHS departmental action.
The CHS Student Appeals Committee shall be consistent with powers granted by the CHS Faculty Code with respect to the functions and authority of the Committee. Such powers include the establishment of additional procedures by the Committee, which are not in conflict with the procedures identified in the CHS Student Appeals Committee Policy & Procedures manual.
The Student Appeals cover sheet must be properly completed and accompany a formal letter of appeal to the Chair of the Student Appeals Committee.
THE ACADEMIC STANDARDS COMMITTEE
The CHS Academic Standards Committee (ASC) acts for the CHS governing faculty in matters relating to academic standards. Consistent with Regents By-Laws, Section 5.03 and the Principles of Faculty Involvement in Institutional and Academic Governance of the University of Michigan, its jurisdiction is the academic program, including general education, of students who have been admitted to CHS.
The function of this committee is the maintenance of academic standards of CHS. The committee will meet as necessary to review student petitions and related matters and shall act for the CHS governing faculty to review those academic deficiencies which fall below UM-Flint minimum standards.
Students from CHS programs with established policies and procedures to determine academic discipline are under the jurisdiction of their respective departments unless the students’ academic performance falls below the UM-Flint minimum standards.
Students must complete their final 30 credit hours at the University of Michigan-Flint. Students transferring courses within the last 30 credit hours of completing their graduation requirements will be ineligible to graduate unless granted special approval through their Academic Standards Committee. For questions please refer to your academic advisor.
