Any student has the right to appeal a questioned grade to the course instructor in writing, if the student believes the instructor has miscalculated the grade, or has not given reasonable and timely assessment of the student's course assignments. The appeal process must conclude within six weeks of the start of the appeal. Grade changes submitted after the six-week deadline will not be processed.
A procedure has been established for resolving those occasions when a student actively disagrees with the grade received in a course.
- No later than two weeks after the student's receipt of the grade report listing the questioned grade, the student must confer with the instructor. If a grade inaccuracy is determined, the instructor will process a grade-change request. Grade changes must be submitted within four weeks of the start of the appeal.
- If agreement cannot be reached, the student may appeal to the division chair in writing. If the division chair can mediate an agreement between the student and instructor, a grade-change request may be processed. If no agreement can be reached, or if the instructor is also the division chair, the next step is applicable.
- The student may appeal the decision to the Provost in writing. The Provost shall investigate and render a decision. A decision by the Provost either to change the grade or leave it as it is, will be considered final.
- Approved by the Provost.
