Grade Appeal Process
A Grade Appeal involves only those situations in which a student believes that an instructor: (a) has not followed fair grading practice, or (b) has not followed published grading policy.
A student who wishes to appeal a final grade based on one or both reasons must follow these procedures:
- The student must first contact the instructor for a full explanation of the grade given and the basis for assigning the grade.
- If there is no resolution, then the student may file a grade appeal request in writing and include any supporting documents to the Provost. If a grade appeal request is not received by the college within 6 weeks of the end date of the course, then the student will forfeit any further right to appeal.
- After the college receives the grade appeal request, it will be forwarded to the instructor for response.
- The Academic Appeals Committee will meet to review the form and submitted documents. The decision of the committee will be final and binding upon all parties.
