Copies of the latest Code of Conduct are posted on the Policies and Procedures Web page at http://policies.temple.edu
and are generally available throughout the University at all times. Students are responsible for knowing the contents of the Code of Conduct. Ignorance of Code of Conduct provisions will not constitute a defense in any proceeding against a student.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Ambler College Bylaws
Temple University Ambler and Temple University Fort Washington (TUFW) have written procedures to provide both students and faculty the proper course of action to resolve all academic grievances arising in any course. Grievances must be filed within six months of the occurrence of the alleged grievance.
The procedures involve five steps:
- Students first must make a reasonable attempt to speak with the instructor concerned and to provide copies of all relevant documents to the instructor. If the problem is not resolved, the student should speak with the Department Chair. If the problem is still not resolved, the student should contact the Student Ombudsperson and/or the appropriate Administrator.
- If the conflict persists, the student may appeal in writing to the Department Chair. The Chair will consider the case and render a written report within 15 days.
- If the conflict is not resolved, the dissatisfied party may appeal in writing to the Chair of the Faculty Responsibility and Student Grievance Committee. If the Chair determines that the complaint is not frivolous, the Chair will convene the Student Appeal and Grievance Subcommittee of the Faculty and Student Grievance Committee.
- The Campus Dean will review the subcommittee’s recommendations and render a final decision.
- When appeal warrants review beyond Ambler or TUFW, students, faculty, or the Dean may appeal to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies or the Graduate Board Student Appeals Committee.
