Summary

This study examined issues concerning due process and the rights of Florida state university students, health insurance and services, and grade appeal policies. Questionnaires were sent to 3,250 Florida university students and members of the Florida Student Association. Analysis of the 502 returned surveys indicated that: (1) while most students did not report experiencing a violation of their rights, those who had participated in any type of proceeding obtained a favorable ruling and held a positive view of officials' professionalism; (2) although most students were insured through their parents' insurance policies, more became uninsured as they progressed through college, and those who used the student health center believed their fee was reasonable; (3) although few students appealed grades, most were aware of the appeal process and considered it fairly administered. The document contains 17 tables detailing survey results. Among 10 proposed policy recommendations are the following: establish consistent judiciary proceedings for student cases; require students to make and retain a complete record of any hearings; adopt a common policy on grade forgiveness and withdrawals; and limit students to two attempts per course to improve a grade. Appendices include the questionnaire, sample letters, a sample Code of Conduct, state regulations, and recommendations concerning course withdrawal and forgiveness. (Contains 10 references.) (CK)
