As of March 2016, two new check boxes have been added to the bottom of the Student Appeal Form. Both are for the Barnard Chair or Program Director. The first reads, "I agree with this student's rationale," and this box is required for the Sub-Committee on Student Appeals to consider the form. The second reads, "I would like this GER request to go to the Barnard COI." This box is intended to facilitate the process of having a course approved for a specific GER designation: it eliminates the necessity of filling out another, separate COI form, and instead guarantees that the course will automatically go to the COI if the student's individual appeal is approved. The Barnard Chair or Program Director will be notified of each decision.
