What is FERPA?
Should a graduate student feel he or she has been treated unfairly, there are a number of resources available. With few exceptions, students should first attempt to resolve difficulties informally by bringing those concerns directly to the person responsible for the action, or with the student's graduate advisor, the department head, or the immediate supervisor of the person responsible for the action. If the problem cannot be resolved informally, the student may be able to file a formal grievance.
Graduate student parents are encouraged to consider applicable family care programs from UA Life & Work Connections, ranging from individual consultations and referrals, to Child Care Subsidy & Housing Program, lactation resources, and a University-subsidized Sick Child and Emergency/Back-up Care Program. Visit http://lifework.arizona.edu to learn more about student child care and related programs.
All faculty, students, and staff at the University of Arizona are assigned an official UA email account (email.arizona.edu). This is the address to which official university correspondence is directed by default. Members of PTYS/LPL also receive an LPL email account (lpl.arizona.edu). Be advised that you will either have to check both accounts, or forward/merge accounts. John Pursch (firstname.lastname@example.org) can assist you in setting up your email account and providing instruction regarding access.
