Section 10: Student Appeals

All Boise State University students have the right to appeal any academic policy or requirement if either of the following conditions is present:

  • Extenuating circumstances make it impossible to comply with the policy or requirement.
  • An undue hardship would result from a strict application or interpretation of the policy or requirement.

Please note, however, that extenuating circumstances must be beyond the student’s control and that undue hardship must be a condition far more serious than simple inconvenience. All appeals must include a Graduate Appeal Form which includes the signature of the student’s academic advisor and/or program coordinator where appropriate. Documentation will be required and the timeliness of the appeal will be taken into consideration.

This section describes the following requests that are specific to graduate students.

10.1 Request for an Exception to the Regionally Accredited Institution Requirement for Admission
10.2 Reinstatement to a Graduate Program
10.3 Extend the Duration of Study
10.4 Apply Courses Completed Outside of Graduate Policy
