                   Disciplinary measures range from warning to expulsion from the University based on the

                     1.  Reprimanding.

                     4.  Assigning a failing mark to students in any evaluation during the academic semester
                        except for the final examination.

                   of his/her college, who in turn may refer the matter to the University Appeal Committee, if
                   any  of  the  following  two  conditions  apply:  (a)  new  evidence,  and  (b)  disproportionate
                   disciplinary action. The decision of the Student Affairs Committee shall be final.

                                         5  Students’ Grievance

                   Grievance  is  a  feeling  that  something  unfair  or  wrong  has  been  done  which  constitutes
                   grounds for complaint. When this feeling develops among the students, it is likely to affect
                   their academic performance. DU has well defined policy to handle students’ grievances. A
                   student is strongly advised to know his/her rights and consult the Students Advisory Council,
                   the  Academic  Advisor  and/or  the  concerned  Department  Chairperson  before  lodging  a
                   grievance  as  DU  encourages  resolving  such  issues  on  a  friendly  basis  rather  than  going
                   through  the  formal  procedure.  However,  if  the  first  friendly  approach  has  not  led  to
                   resolving the grievance, a formal procedure is already set for settling it down.
