Academic Standards Committee

The Academic Standards Committee (ASC) is a subcommittee of the Faculty Senate, with representation from each college, as well as service offices involved in the enforcement of academic policy.  The ASC was established to review undergraduate policies and maintain the academic standards of the university, while recognizing that special circumstances may occasionally warrant an exception to a policy.

Exceptions to undergraduate academic policy are allowed only when there are documented, extenuating circumstances that had a negative impact on a student’s ability to adhere to university policy.

If you are a graduate student requesting a waiver to university policy, you should contact the subcommittee of the University Graduate Committee.



Read the Academic Standards Committee bylaws, effective 10/10/2017.
