Petitions and Appeals

Sargent College Policy

The Committee on Academic Policies and Procedures (CAPP) is the group that can take action on petitions from students seeking variance from a Sargent College academic policy or regulation. Petition forms can be obtained on the Sargent College website.

Students who seek a variance of a program policy or regulation, or who have a grievance with an instructor or a departmental decision, should attempt to resolve the situation with the individual instructor, with the department chair, or by petition to the departmental faculty. The student may appeal decisions made at the departmental level by submitting a petition of appeal to the Committee on Academic Policies and Procedures. Please contact the department coordinator for specific information.
