4.7 Appeals

4.7.1 Student Appeals

Final judgment on all appeals regarding admissions (including program admissions), residency, student grades, traffic citations, and the Guaranteed Tuition Plan rests with the president of the institution at which the appeal is heard; or, in the case of medical school admissions, final judgment rests with the formally constituted admissions committee of the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.

Any University System student aggrieved by a final decision of the president of an institution, other than those stated above, may apply to the Board’s Office of Legal Affairs for a review of the decision, in accordance with Policy 8.6 Applications for Discretionary Review; provided, however, that an application may be reviewed if (1) the record suggests that a miscarriage of justice might reasonably occur if the application is not reviewed, or (2) whether the record suggests that the institutional decision, if not reviewed, might reasonably have detrimental and system-wide significance.

(BoR Minutes, April 2010, Feb. 2015; June 2006; Feb. 2017)

4.7.2 Appeals on Other Matters
