parties will not be processed. An Appeals Committee
will convene consisting of the Dean for Student Life
acting as the presiding officer (with no vote), one
faculty member, the student’s RD, one member of
the Student Life Staff, the Student Body Chaplain,
and, if the appealing student desires, two character
references of his/her choice (with no vote). The
Dean for Student Life may also invite any student
with relevant information to provide testimony to
the committee. Once the committee has convened,
the presiding officer will invite the appropriate Dean
and RA into the meeting, along with the appealing
student, and as many as two character references
chosen by the student. The Dean will be asked to
state the issues, after which the appealing student will
be given every opportunity to state his appeal. When
all parties are satisfied that the issues have been clearly
communicated and understood, the Dean, appealing
student, and character references will be asked to
leave although the committee may request the return
of the Dean or the student for further clarification.
After any needed deliberation, the committee will
come to a decision. Both the Dean and the student
in question will then be asked to return. If the
committee was not in agreement with the dismissal
decision, they give their reasoning and recommend
a change in the decision. If the committee upholds
the Dean’s decision, no further provision for appeal
is available.
Directed Studies
A Directed Studies (DS) course is defined as a course
that is being taken in a non-regularly scheduled class

semester units of TMC DS coursework during
his/her undergraduate program.
2. A student may be enrolled in no more than two
DS courses at any one time.
3. A student may have no more than one DS
course still in progress during the third week in
March to be eligible to participate in the May
commencement ceremonies.
4. A student may enroll for a DS course at any time
during the school year excluding finals week.

student dropping a DS course will be based
