Grade Appeals


To maintain due process in all areas of the University, any student is afforded the opportunity to appeal grades that the student alleges to be capricious or miscalculated. While it is the right of the student to appeal, University policies, procedures and guidelines will be followed without deviation. This appeal process is to be used only if the student has been unsuccessful in informally resolving a grade appeal with the course instructor. The Grade Appeal Form, along with written reasons stating why the student is appealing the grade, must be submitted in advance of meeting with the School Dean (or designee). Appeals should be initiated by submitting the completed appeal form within ten (10) business days of the grade’s release (this includes individual assignments through final course grades). Note that Grade Appeal Forms can be obtained from the Office of Academic Affairs. The appeal form delineates the time line for administrative review and consideration of grade appeals.
