Policies and Procedures
To comply with legislative requirements, the University of New Hampshire Global Student Success Program (GSSP) has a number of policies and procedures in place. These policies and procedures include privacy, academic misconduct, academic probation and dismissal, and examination process.
UNH GSSP is bound by the Privacy Act which regulates the way private sector organizations can collect, use and disclose personal information.
Code of Conduct
The Student Rights, Rules & Responsibilities provides a framework of standard acceptable behavior for students. Students are responsible for understanding and complying with this Code. The Student Rights, Rules & Responsibilities can be found online at http://www.unh.edu/vpsas/handbook/welcome-university-new-hampshire.
All students studying at UNH GSSP have the right to be treated with respect and courtesy by UNH GSSP staff and fellow students in an environment free from harassment and conducive to learning.
UNH GSSP expects you to abide by the Code of Conduct by accepting responsibility for your behavior and conducting yourself in a professional manner at all times, treating fellow students and staff with respect, honesty and courtesy.
Grievance procedures, appeals or complaints
UNH GSSP has policies and procedures for dealing with student complaints, grievances and appeals in a constructive and timely manner.
Access and equity
UNH GSSP is committed to equal opportunity for all students to ensure that no student who has met the specified academic and English language entry requirements is denied access to a program and that no student, once enrolled in a course, is disadvantaged.
All UNH GSSP staff, both academic and administrative, are responsible for ensuring that any student with disabilities is treated with dignity and courtesy, and given every opportunity to reach their full educational potential.
UNH GSSP Satisfactory Academic Progress & Academic Probation outlines the required standards for academic performance at UNH GSSP. This policy is available upon request.
Credit transfer may be given to students who have completed an equivalent course of study at accredited institutions of higher education where the grade received was not lower than the minimum requirement.
It is important to note that a transfer credit evaluation will not be done by the University of New Hampshire until AFTER you have completed UNH GSSP. Therefore, UNH GSSP will not be able to waive any of your course requirements while in our program. This may result in some duplication of credits. In these instances the grade earned at UNH while in the UNH GSSP will supersede any transfer credits.
The University of New Hampshire (UNH) and Disability Services for Students (DSS) take great pride in promoting the development of student self-reliance and the personal independence necessary to succeed in a university climate. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on a basis of ability, not disability. UNH is committed to providing equal opportunities for students with disabilities. The University of New Hampshire believes that students have the right and also the responsibility to determine whether or not to use support services. In keeping with this objective, students are expected and encouraged to utilize the resources of Disability Services for Students to the degree they determine necessary. UNH encourages students to provide information regarding the nature of their disability and special needs during the application and enrolment process. It is important that students provide UNH with these details as early as possible so that we can assess students' support needs and ensure that they are able to access their chosen program of study.
