Grade Review and Appeal Policy

A student may request a review of their final grade if they believe there is an error in the mechanical calculation of the grade or the grade was not compliant with the stated policy on the course syllabus. The evaluation of student work is the responsibility of the instructor and is not subject to review. The process for review is as follows:
  1. The student must contact the faculty member within 15 days of the receipt of the grade and request a full review of their grade based on stated criteria in the syllabus. 
  2. If this does not resolve the student issue, they may send a written appeal for a grade review to the Vice President of Academic Affairs within 30 days of receipt of the grade. The written appeal must include:
      a. a copy of the syllabus
      b. The faculty member’s response and grade calculation
      c. an explanation of the alleged calculation error
      d. copies or documentation of student grades that do not match the faculty interpretation
  3. The Vice President for Academic Affairs will review the materials and request any additional documentation from the faculty member.

After reviewing the information from the student and the faculty member, the Vice President for Academic Affairs will notify each of the review decision. This decision will be final.
