Professional Behavior, Criminal Background Check, and Drug Testing Policy

Students who have questions about their ability to satisfy the Division’s or Program’s requirements for professional conduct should meet with the Division or Program Director to discuss their concerns.

Grade Appeals

All divisions and programs in the Department of Health Sciences abide by the UNC-CH policy on student grievances.

Enrollment in DHS Courses During an Appeal Process

During a grade appeal process, the student’s division or program will determine whether or not the student may enroll in further DHS classes based on all of the facts and circumstances. Factors that could be considered include prerequisite knowledge for the course(s) in which the student wishes to enroll and the student’s overall performance in the program. This decision may be made in consultation with the Graduate School, the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office, Accessibility Resources and Service, or other University offices depending on the grounds for the appeal.
