Academic policies are set by the Augustana College faculty. The Committee on Advanced Standing and Degrees (AS&D) is responsible for overseeing academic policies and degree requirements set forth in the college catalog. The committee consists of a non-voting chair (Registrar), five faculty members elected every two years and three advisory positions: two students appointed by Student Government Association (SGA) and the Associate Dean.
Waivers for degree requirements or academic policies must be made by the student in writing to the Office of the Registrar a minimum of two days prior to a scheduled AS&D meeting (contact the Registrar for the meeting schedule.) Students will be notified of the committee decision in writing within one week of the meeting. Written appeals may be made to the Dean of the College within 10 days of the date of the letter.
