Graduate Student Code of Conduct and Grievance / Appeals Processes


Berkeley Graduate Division: Dismissal, Probation, or Re-Admission


The Berkeley Graduate Division has final jurisdiction over administrative and academic decisions that terminate or otherwise impede a graduate studentís progress towards their degree goals.

Such matters include dismissal from the program, being placed on academic probation, and being denied re-admission if the student was in good academic standing at the time of withdrawal.

The Graduate Divison encourages students to first attempt to resolve their complaint at the department level. See Haas School of Business Grievance / Appeal Procedure for the Haas Schoolís grievance appeal procedure.

If a mutually satisfactory resolution can not be reached at the department level, your next step is to begin the Graduate Appeal Procedure.
