Global Campus Student Resources
Global Campus students get access to the same resources that are available to students on campus. An extensive list of online resources is available below to help you find University resources that you can use.
Course Concern Form
If there is a concern with your instructor or your course that needs to be addressed, and you have been unsuccessful in resolving the issue with your instructor you may fill out the Course Concern Form. The form goes to the administrator with supervisory responsibility for the course.
Potential issues that may be addressed include absent instructors, lack of feedback, negative course environment, faculty changes course requirements without notification.
Issues that can not be addressed include the course being too difficult, course takes too much time, you don't care for the book / assignments, you disagree with an assigned grade.
If faced with an emergency such as a severe illness that prevents the completion of a course within the semester, students may request an Incomplete using the Incomplete Request Form.
Final Grade Appeal
The grade appeal process should only be used when the student believes that the final course grade assigned is unfair. It is not to be used to challenge grades on individual assignments or quizzes. Final Grade Appeal Steps
Reduction or Waiver of Charges
If you have a mitigating circumstance outside of your control which resulted in a charge on your account you can fill out an appeal to have the charges reduced or waived. An appeal MUST include supporting documentation. Documents must be detailed and data specific, related, and legible.
Academic Dishonesty is defined as any activity that undermines the academic integrity of the institution. Definitions of academic integrity violations can be found in the Student Code of Conduct
The Academic Calendar lists the start dates, holidays, end dates, and more.
Students should contact the Student Access Coordinator at their campus to request accommodations as early as possible in order to have proper documentation ready for their faculty at the start of the semester. Accommodations also can apply to temporary medical conditions. Students will need to fill out the Accommodation Request Form.
Student Conduct and Care
As part of the Davenport University community, every student is responsible for knowing and following Davenport's Policies. Students should also review the Student Code of Conduct and other policies as outlined in the Student Catalog and be familiar with Davenport's expectations of personal integrity, civil responsibility, and of professional and academic accountability.
Concerned about a student? If you are concerned about a student's wellness, tell someone using the Student Care or Concern Form.
