Student Policies

Student Resources and Graduate Handbooks

Student policies and procedures are listed in the academic catalog, and graduate programs provide student handbooks for the unique policies related to their programs. Questions regarding policies and procedures should be addressed to the students’ academic advisor (undergraduate) or student support staff (graduate). All ASU students are expected to follow the ASU Code of Conduct policies.

Student handbooks include important information to help students progress through their program. If students do not understand a policy or procedure, they should contact their academic advisor for more information.

Handbooks for graduate programs are available for students to download at https://chs.asu.edu/students/advising/advising-forms.

Information for Faculty

Non-Grade Grievances

Non-Grade Grievances

Grievances not related to a course or assignment grade should begin with a discussion about the matter between the student and the course instructor. If the matter remains unresolved, the student completes the Grievance Appeal form and sends to the Executive Director of Student Success for further review and action. 

Note: If the issue involves a possible violation of Title IX, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion should be immediately contacted.

  • Notetaker assistance
  • Extra time for exams
  • Proctored exams in the DRC office
  • Flexible attendance
  • Flexible deadlines

Note, faculty may not ask the DRC what disability the student has requested accommodations for.
