POLICIES: Academic Appeals
At Hunter, 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 Requirement (GER), exemptions from the Foreign Language Requirement, extension of time to take absentee examinations, and other academic situations involving classwork—are heard in the Office of Student Services, 1119 East Building.
If you believe that you have a situation that warrants a possible variance, meet with an Advisor in the Office of Student Services. To arrange an appointment, call (212)772-4882, or visit 1119 East Building.
