Other Student Policies Home
Certain policies apply to grades, how they are issued, repeat/delete policy, minimum GPA requirements, etc. Read more about CSUDH's grading policies here.
Sometimes a student may feel that they did not receive the grade they deserved. The Grade Appeal Policy (Presidential Memorandum 96-02) allows for a process by which students may seek a change in their grade.
Student's Right to Access
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act [PDF] students have access to their personal records. In addition, FERPA protects the records from being seen by individuals who are not employed by the University. Most University employees are limited in their access to student records. This access is provided on an as-needed basis only.
Disabled Student Grievance Procedure
Disabled students who feel that they are not receiving reasonable accommodations or are confronted with some other learning obstacle may use Presidential Memorandum 78-14 for remediation.
Policy on Sexual Assault
The campus strives to provide a very safe environment that is free of physical assaults. If any student or staff is sexually assaulted, Presidential Memorandum 2009-06 [DOC] spells out the steps the campus will take to assist the victim and arrest and/or discipline the perpetrator.
