Minimum Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Academic Regulations and Degree Requirements - Appeal Process
Students should process any petitions for waiver of policy or other academic appeals to their interim advisers or research advisers. The advisers should attach their recommendation and forward the request to the doctoral faculty review groups within the disciplines.

If the appeal does not require a policy decision, action on the appeal may be handled at the discipline level. If a policy decision is required or if, after action by the discipline, the student wishes a higher level of review of the case, the appeal or petition, complete with documentation of all reviews up to that point, may be forwarded to the dean of the School of Graduate Studies for action or referral to the appropriate subcommittees of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Executive Committee.
