Right of Appeal
You have the right to appeal any academic policy or requirement if either of the following conditions is present:
- Extenuating circumstances make it impossible for you 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 your control and that undue hardship must be a condition far more serious than simple inconvenience. Documentation will be required and the timeliness of the appeal will be taken into consideration. Instructions on how to submit an appeal can be found on the Academic Appeal Form.
If you appeal an academic policy or requirement, the dean of the college responsible for your major or the University Academic Appeals Committee will most likely review that appeal. For more information about appeals and grievances, see the Boise State University Policy Manual.
