MCS Graduate Student Appeal and Grievance Procedures

Please see the Summary of Graduate Student Appeal and Grievance Procedures for a summary of the processes available to Carnegie Mellon graduate students who seek review of academic and non-academic issues. Generally, graduate students are expected to seek informal resolution of all concerns within the applicable department, unit or program before invoking formal processes.

In addition, MCS has a policy on ombudspersons for graduate affairs, at the departmental level, an important resource for information in identifying options and resolving conflicts that involve a graduate student. Please see our ombudsperson page if you are not sure who to speak with in a particular department.
