Purpose: 

To describe how students may petition for substitutions to requirements for AAOT, ASOT – Business, AS, or AGS degrees; waiver of requirements for AAS degrees and certificates; extensions on college deadlines; and grade appeals.

Narrative: 

The Academic Requirements Review Committee (ARRC) acts on student petitions covering substitutions to requirements for AAOT, ASOT – Business, AS, or AGS degrees; waiver of requirements for AAS degrees and certificates; extensions on college deadlines; and grade appeals.  The ARRC acts in an advisory capacity to the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs on the total subject of academic rules and regulations for Lane Community College, and has authority to make decisions regarding petitions submitted by students. If students disagree with the Committee's decision, they may file an appeal to the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. Petitioners have the right to challenge an ARRC Member's participation in the formal grievance procedure on conflict-of-interest grounds, in which case, said member shall be absent from formal hearings. The nature of the work of this Committee is to review specific student petitions. Details for each student petition are recorded and maintained in that student's academic record.

There is an exception for students completing the disability-related, course substitution process as part of the student's academic accommodations. Please contact Disability Resources for more information about this process. Disability Resources can be contacted in the following ways: In-person in Building 1, Room 218, by telephone at (541) 463-5150, TTY at 711, or email at DisabilityResources@lanecc.edu.
