If a student believes their education record is inaccurate or misleading:
- The student must first discuss the concern with the University Registrar or designee. Note: This does not apply to grade disputes (although it may be used to correct a clerical error in grades).
- If the record keeper does not agree with the student, they will inform the student of the right to a formal hearing.
- Students must request a formal hearing within 30 university business days from the date they are informed of the right to a hearing.
- The request must be in writing and delivered to the Senior Executive Director of Enrollment Management.
- The university official who receives the formal hearing request will either hear the case personally or designate a hearing committee.
- The committee will include one representative from the University Registrar's Office, two faculty members, and two students.
- A written decision will be delivered to all parties summarizing the evidence and stating the reason(s) for the decision. If the decision is in favor of the student, the education record will be amended. If the decision is for the record to remain the same, the student may place a statement commenting on or disagreeing with the decision in the education record.
