Students at UNC Charlotte have the right to appeal a final course grade under certain conditions. A final course grade will be deemed to have been assigned impermissibly or arbitrarily if a student can establish, with a preponderance of evidence, that:
The primary objectives of this Student Grievance Procedure are to ensure that students have the opportunity to present grievances to the University regarding a certain action or inaction by a member of the University community and that the University has a consistent way of resolving those grievances in a fair and just manner.
This Policy was developed in response to a recently-enacted North Carolina law, codified at NC General Statute 116-11(3a), which requires UNC Charlotte to (1) authorize a minimum of two excused absences each academic year for religious observances required by the faith of a student; and (2) provide students the opportunity to make up any tests or other work missed due to an excused absence for a religious observance. In order to facilitate compliance with this new law while mitigating the burden on faculty, the Policy establishes a procedure for students to request accommodations for religious observances through the submission of a request form prior to the census date of each semester.
For the purposes of this Policy:
This Policy establishes a process and procedures for the involuntary withdrawal of students who, for reasons pertaining to mental or physical health, engage in behavior that presents a direct threat of harm to the health or safety of others.
The University is committed to ensuring equality of educational opportunity while fostering an environment that promotes education, research, service, and the growth and safety of all members of its community. From time to time University officials may become aware of a student who is suffering from a medical or psychological disorder and, as a result of the disorder, presents a direct threat to the health or safety of others.
The purpose of The Code of Student Responsibility (CSR) is to protect the campus community and to maintain an environment conducive to learning. University rules for student conduct discussed in detail. The procedures followed for any student charged with a violation of The Code, including the right to a hearing before an administrative panel or a Student Court panel, are fully described. Individual and group sanctions which may be imposed for violations of disciplinary regulations are also covered.

This policy describes guidelines to be followed to provide an orderly, effective and caring response in the event of the death of a student.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte intends to provide a safe and positive environment for all students. However, when tragedy does occur, it is the responsibility of the University to respond in a sensitive and sympathetic manner. The death of a student impacts the entire University community. These guidelines have been established to provide an orderly, effective, and caring response.
The Dean of Students Office should be contacted immediately whenever a member of the University community observes the physical or psychological abuse or intentional public embarrassment of any person or persons. That office, in conjunction with the Campus Police, will conduct a complete investigation of each such report, and will pursue on-campus disciplinary action, criminal prosecution, or both depending on the particular facts and circumstances.
The University prohibits any form of hazing of its students, at any time, or at any location on or off campus, including fraternity houses, private residences, or public property. The University will respond swiftly to investigate reports of hazing received from any source, and will promptly determine whether to proceed with campus disciplinary action, to forward a report to appropriate law enforcement officials for prosecution as a criminal matter, or both. University students who voluntarily consent to hazing, as well as those who inflict it, are subject to such action.
Federal law and regulations require that "education records," including almost all University records which relate directly to a student, must be held in confidence. The student, however, has a legal right of access to his/her own education records. Faculty members and administrators who have a legitimate educational interest may have access to a student's confidential records without the student's permission, but in most other cases the written consent of the student is required before access may legally be permitted. Students have certain rights to correct or delete inaccurate or misleading information in their education records.
