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 or departmental 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 (viz. a department ruling can be appealed to the college in which the institutional unit is located; a college-level ruling can be appealed to the University Council Educational Affairs Committee; the Educational Affairs Committee ruling can be appealed to the President of the University; and the President’s ruling can be appealed to the Board of Regents).
Appeals of academic matters should be referred to the
