Jurisdiction

The authority of the Administrative Board to handle virtually all matters related to undergraduate rules and regulations derives from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the governing body of Harvard College and of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. While the Administrative Board alone has jurisdiction to decide on exceptions to certain academic policies or rules, changes in enrollment or registration, and to review unsatisfactory academic records and fulfillment of degree requirements, it formally shares jurisdiction over certain kinds of disciplinary matters with the Harvard College Honor Council, the Student Faculty Judicial Board, and the Office of Sexual and Gender-Based Dispute Resolution.
