Right of Appeal

All members of the University community are entitled to fair and equitable procedures.

Appeals concerning UNF policies

Any student who believes that a University policy imposes an undue hardship may petition that policy by submitting a Request for Waiver of University Policy form. Forms are available in One Stop Student Services and supporting documentation is required before a petition will be reviewed. Students will be notified via email of the results of a submitted petition. Submission of a petition does not guarantee approval.

Appeals concerning courses

Students who wish to appeal a course grade (except for the grade of “Incomplete”) must do so within 90 days of completing the course in question. Students can pick up the guidelines for grade appeals at One Stop Student Services.

Appeals concerning civil rights

 Members of the community who believe they have not been accorded rights under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 should contact the Director of Equal Opportunity Programs.
