Know Your Rights
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex—including pregnancy and parental status—in educational programs and activities.

For more information on the ways Dunwoody must comply with Title IX, visit the U.S. Department of Education webpage.

Student Academic Probation And Warning (SAP) And Progression (PACE) Concerns

As a Dunwoody student, you are required to meet or exceed a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 and successfully complete 67% of the courses attempted. If you fall short in either of those areas, a warning and probationary process may follow. Keep those grades up and go to class and this will never apply to you! If it does, we have a plan in place to get you back on track.

Student Code of Conduct

The Student Code of Conduct provides guidance on conduct that is not in accordance with Dunwoody’s mission. Such conduct is subject to sanction by the College.

Student Requests

If there are things we can do to enhance your college experience, please fill out the Student Request Form (Dunwoody login required) and schedule a meeting with the Dean of Students.
