Where to Get Help
Faculty, Department Chair or Dean - If you are a student with educational issues, you are encouraged to talk with the course instructor/faculty member, the Department Chair or your College/School Dean to seek resolution. If these steps don't have the desired outcome, then you may contact the Graduate School for mediation.
Judicial Services - If you are a student experiencing academic issues or seek review of final course grades, you must first attempt to resolve the issue informally with the instructor of the course. If the course instructor is unavailable and/or you believe the grading was arbitrary and capricious, the next step is to address the issue with the appropriate department chair. If you are dissatisfied with the resolution you may file with Judicial Services and they will process your grievance. You may contact the Dean of Students, Don Foley, or Jennifer Fontes at 907.474.6496. The Judicial Services Office is located at 101 Eielson Building. Grade appeal policy and procedures can be found here: http://www.uaf.edu/uafgov/faculty-senate/policies-procedures/grade-appeals/. The policy regarding academic appeals other than assignment-of-grade can be found here: http://www.uaf.edu/uafgov/faculty-senate/policies-procedures/appeals-policy-for-academ/
Registrar - Students who believe there has been a violation of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) may contact the Registrar's Office. More information can be found at http://www.alaska.edu/studentservices/ferpa/
Diversity and Equal Opportunity - The Office of Diversity and Equal Oportunity processes complaints of discrimination and sexual harassment. If you believe you are being treated differently or if you believe your educational opportunities are being affected by your race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, genetic code, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, veteran status or retaliation, then the D & EO office is the appropriate avenue for redress.
