The grade appeals process used by undergraduate and graduate students wishing to appeal grades they have received in their coursework is described in Student Regulations (E. Grade Appeals System). The grade appeals system affords recourse to a student who has evidence or believes that evidence exists to show that an inappropriate grade has been assigned as a result of prejudice, caprice, or other improper conditions such as mechanical error, or assignment of a grade inconsistent with those assigned other students. Additionally, a student may challenge the reduction of a grade for alleged scholastic dishonesty.
Informal attempts must be made to resolve grade grievances and appeals at the lowest possible level - through the course instructor, the department head, or other informal procedures outlined by the college/school and/or department in which the course was taught. If a student is not satisfied with the outcome of this process, they may file a College-level Grade Appeal by contacting Dennis Minchella at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelley Farrell at email@example.com.
Please note: the informal process described here and College-level appeal must be accomplished within 30 calendar days after the start of the regular semester following the one in which the questioned grade was given.
