This committee rules on student petitions concerning academic matters, as well as queries from faculty and administration on matters relating to interpretation or application of academic standards. The committee is responsible for recommending to the Faculty Senate standards for admissions, continuation and graduation; and to monitor actions of administrators to ensure that such standards as may be approved by the Senate are enforced. The committee also makes recommendations for scholarships and reviews policies for financial assistance.
