Disqualification from the MLIS Program and Right to Appeal
Students receiving an RP in LIBR 289 must successfully complete the missing or unsatisfactory work for a grade of Credit within the specified RP time period (2 years). Failure to complete the assigned work will result in an RP grade being converted to a No Credit "NC".
Students receiving a grade of No Credit twice in LIBR 289 will be disqualified from the MLIS program.
Students may appeal disqualification from the MLIS program under the SJSU Academic Senate Policy F-96-11 II-C. Please also read the Student Rights and Responsibilities section in the San José State University Catalog. The first step is to direct a letter to the School's Coordinator of Admissions and Academic Advising with a copy also sent to the Director of SLIS. The appeal letter must provide the facts to be taken into account in evaluating your request. The Coordinator of Admissions and Academic Advising will convene a faculty committee for review of the issues raised and make a recommendation to the Director who will advise the student of the School's decision.
