Grading & Assessment
Final Grade Appeal Process
Students who perceive that a final grade was miscalculated, unfair or capriciously assigned should first inform the instructor in writing of the specific complaint within two weeks of the end of the term. If the issue remains unresolved, the student should inform the program chair in writing of the complaint.
The program chair will meet with both parties individually or together in an attempt to mediate a successful resolution. If the matter cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of the student and the instructor, the matter is forwarded to the associate dean's office.
An ad hoc faculty committee may be appointed. This committee will make a written recommendation within 10 days. Both the student and the instructor will be notified of the decision. All changes of assigned grades are subject to a statute of limitations of one year from the end of the term in which the course was completed.
