Grade Appeals

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. The grade appeal process is as follows:

  1. The Grade Appeal form must be completed and filed in the Registrar's Office within 30 calendar days of the last day of the semester.
  2. The student must contact the instructor within five business days of the filing of the appeal.
  3. If the appeal is not resolved and the student wishes to continue the appeal process, the student must appeal in writing to the next level supervisor within five business days.
  4. Once the appeal has been filed, it is the student's responsibility to work through the steps in the process.

For a copy of the full policy, with details on the formal procedures and deadlines, contact the Registrar's Office or the Academic Support Services Office.
