Grade Appeals

Students have the right to appeal a grade when they believe that the grade was based on factors other than the student's academic performance in the course.  The process for filing a grade appeal is as follows:
  1. The student must present written proof or justification to his/her Instructor that he/she deserves a grade change. If the request for a change of grade is denied then the student can submit her appeal to the academic program coordinator.
  2. The second level involves a meeting with the Academic Program Coordinator.  The student must submit a written report of his/her meeting with the instructor to the Coordinator.  If the Program Coordinator feels that there is sufficient cause to appeal a grade, then the Program Coordinator will initiate the appeal and forward the appeal to the Chairperson.  If the department denies the appeal, then the student can submit his/her appeal to the academic department chairperson.
  3. The third level involves a meeting with the Academic Department Chairperson, In this case, the Chairperson will review the appeal and all pertinent documents available – grade rosters, copies of papers and exams- and determine whether the appeal can be granted or not.  Once a ruling has been made, the case should be considered closed.  If the department denies the appeal, then the student can submit his/her appeal to the Academic Standard Committee.
