If serious questions arise as to the determination of a final course grade, the student must first reference the syllabus for the course and discuss the matter directly with the faculty member. If no solution is found, a written request for a review should be made to the Chief Academic Officer. The request for a review of a semester grade must address the process followed in calculating the final grade and not the instructor's evaluation of the student's work. The following process must be adhered to:
1. A written request for a review of a semester grade must be sent to the Chief Academic Officer no later than 30 days after the date semester grades become available to students online at MyFisher. The student also sends a copy of this request to the faculty member and the Division Chair.
2. The instructor shall forward the following to the Chief Academic Officer
a. A copy of the course syllabus outlining assignments, tests, and examinations, along with their respective percentage weights, used for the final grade calculation.
b. The student's grades for all tests and assignments.
c. A demonstration of the calculations by which the final grade was determined.
After reviewing the information from the faculty member, the Chief Academic Officer will notify the student of the review decision. The decision is final.
