The Grade Appeal Policy applies to questions of an instructor's evaluation of student performance. The expectation is that the majority of appeals can be resolved through a flexible process of direct communication between student and instructor. A formal series of procedures has been established to ensure fairness to all parties in cases that cannot be resolved informally. Grade appeals must be filed within 30 days of the end of the semester. For a copy of the full policy, with details on the formal procedures, contact the Office of the Registrar or the Office of Academic Support Services or consult the Student Handbook/Planner.
