File deadline extensions - deans' authority (2/17/04)
Deans have the authority (effective February 17, 2004) to grant up to a two-week extension of the campus deadline for receipt of academic personnel files. In the interest of fairness and equtiy to all candidates, extensions should only be granted for exceptional, unavoidable, one-time circumstances. Before an extension is granted, a letter requesting the exception must be sent by the department chair or ORU director to the dean. The dean must convey his or her written decision to the department or ORU, with a copy to the SVCAA [now EVC].
