Looking for some advice/suggestions for a Firstie with no behavior issues on record, "A" for their military grade, 151 credit hours earned toward a mechanical engineering major and a GPA of 2.2 that was separated the week of graduation due to a course failure for an elective course. This cadet had a course failure Cow year, and retook the failed class the next semester (23 credit hr semester) and passed the course. The cadet has never even been given any walking hours the entire 4 yrs at the academy. Understanding a second course failure as serious the cadet worked very hard to bring up the course grade and performed fantastic on the TEE. The instructor wrote a recommendation to pass and allow graduation; however, the issue arises with a TAC officer that has been riding this cadet for 3 yrs. This TAC officer did not apply the regulations equally among the cadets under his command. TAC recommended separation to review board for this cadet but had another cadet fail a core course twice and allowed a third attempt without separation of this cadet. That two time failure cadet is now a 2nd LT today 23 May. Can a cadet appeal separation and has one ever been overturned? The cadet attended graduation today in support of his friends and is enrolled in STAP for the failed course all the while receiving a separation packet. Can formal charges/complaint be brought against the TAC who zealously sought a separation of a great future officer?
