4.7 Appeals

Final judgment on all appeals regarding admissions (including program admissions), residency, student grades, and traffic citations rests with the President of the institution at which the appeal is heard. 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 the Board of Regents’ Policy on 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) the record suggests that the institutional decision, if not reviewed, might reasonably have detrimental and system-wide significance.
