Scholastic Review

Brief Description: 

Administration/interpretation of policy for students whose work falls below UO scholarship requirements; rules on petitions for reinstatement/change of grade.

Charge and Responsibilities: 

The Scholastic Review Committee is responsible for administering, within the framework of faculty legislation, the undergraduate academic standards of the University as they pertain to the level of academic performance and progress toward a degree. The SRC reviews the records of undergraduate students doing unsatisfactory work, places such students on probation and sets individual goals for improvement, disqualifies students from attending the University for continued unsatisfactory scholarship, and passes on petitions for reinstatement. These responsibilities are carried out in two ways: 1) End of Term Review -- in which the committee reviews the academic records of undergraduate students who have been disqualified based on academic performance, and 2) Petition Review -- in which the committee acts upon petitions submitted by students for reinstatement, cancellation of academic probation or disqualification, retroactive withdrawal, retroactive change in grading option, or contested grade. Graduate students and law school students are excluded from committee action or review for academic warning, academic probation, and academic disqualification. The Scholastic Review Committee differs from the Academic Requirements Committee in that the SRC normally looks only at changes in the student record once the academic term in question is completed.


Membership of the Scholastic Review Committee is not fixed except for the 4 student members. Membership traditionally includes 7-9 teaching faculty, 4 students, and the following ex officio members: Registrar, a representative from Academic Learning Services, the Multicultural Affairs Director or designee, and 2 representatives from Academic Advising.


The Scholastic Review Committee shall report to the University Senate. At a minimum this report shall be in the form of an annual written report submitted by the Committee Chair to the Senate Executive Coordinator no later than the final University Senate meeting in May. The committee shall also make additional written or oral reports to the Senate as necessary.
