Academic Concerns

Students who have concerns about course requirements, attendance or grading policies, and other similar matters should first discuss them with the instructor. If the concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved, the student should then discuss them with the department chairperson, then the dean of the division. Following that, if necessary, contact the Provost.

Serious concerns about the quality of instruction in a particular course should be brought to the attention of the department chairperson, then to the dean of the division, and when necessary, to the Provost.

Concerns related to final grades should be handled according to the procedures set forth in the Carthage College Policy on Grade Review.

Students who are uncertain about the appropriate way to deal with a particular academic concern are encouraged to discuss the issue with their faculty advisor before taking action.
