Policies and Forms
You can better assure your academic success by reviewing the Hunter College and CUNY policies below.
At Hunter College, the only source of academic rules and regulations is the Hunter College Senate and its committees, composed of faculty, students, and administrators, whose authority comes from the Board of Trustees. Any exceptions to these rules may be granted only by designated individuals.
Appeals for administrative exceptions to academic rules and regulations—including such matters as exceptions to approved program loads, course substitutions for the General Education Requirements (GER) or Hunter Core Requirements (HCR), exemptions from the Foreign Language Requirement, and other academic situations involving coursework—are heard in the Office of Advising Services, Room 1119, East Building.
If you believe that you have an academic situation that warrants a possible variance, please meet with an Advisor. To arrange an appointment, call 212.772.4882, or visit Room 1119, East Building.
Policies regarding student conduct and academic integrity are implemented CUNY-wide. If you believe that you have a situation at Hunter College that requires a decision or appeal, please meet with the Associate Director of Student Conduct.
Some policies require that forms be submitted in order to implement the policy or appeal a decision. For your convenience, PDF versions of many forms are provided below. You must have Adobe Reader to open and print PDF documents. (Download Adobe Reader.) Some forms are fillable online.
Because policies and their related forms are revised from time to time, please ask your Advisor or Student Conduct Coordinator to review the form with you before you submit it.
