  1. First speak with the individual Faculty member.
  2. If the student does not reach an acceptable solution with the individual Faculty member he/she then speak with the Department Head of the specific college.
  3. If the student does not reach an acceptable solution with the Department Head of the college he/she then speak with the Dean of the Specific college.
  4. If the student does not reach an acceptable solution with the Dean of the Specific college he/she should then then speak with the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Formal Process:
