While Illinois College operates according to specific policies established by the faculty and administration, the appeal procedure allows for the orderly suspension or change of policy for cause, or in case of extenuating circumstances. Students may appeal an academic action or seek the change or suspension of an academic policy through written petitions in the Educational Policies Appeal form on Connect2. Disciplinary actions may be appealed to the Dean of Students.
Appeals related to the Teacher Preparation Program may be directed to the Teacher Preparation Committee. Students have the right to advice from the College community before and during all such proceedings. Detailed information on such things as disciplinary policies and appeal processes is in the Student Handbook (Blue Book).
