The History Department Graduate Advisers Committee has final authority in all matters of academic evaluation. Appeals for violation of due procedures may proceed as follows:
1. The student may bring a problem or grievance to the attention of his or her Graduate Adviser for informal resolution.
2. If resolution is not possible at step 1, the student, the Graduate Adviser, or the Department Chair, may request that the Graduate Advisers Committee review the grievance.
3. If resolution is not possible at step 2, the student and/or Graduate Advisers Committee may bring the problem to the attention of the Department Chair.
4. If all such attempts at resolution fail, a formal appeal may be presented to the Dean of the Graduate Division.
