Grade Appeal

Students must initiate a grade appeal within 90 days of the date that the course grade was posted.  Exception: Graduating students must initiate a grade appeal within 30 days of the date that the course grade was posted.

Final grade appeals follow the procedures of the college/school of the course.  In cases of cross-listed courses the procedures of the college/school of the primary department of the course are followed.

The grade appeal process must be resolved within one calendar year of the initiation of the appeal.  Exception: The grade appeal process for graduating students must be resolved within 30 days of the initiation of the appeal.

Students may appeal a grade only for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Miscalculation of grade.
  • The assignment of a grade to a particular student on some basis other than performance in the course.
  • The assignment of a grade to a particular student by more exacting or demanding standards than were applied to other students in that section.
  • The grade assigned results from different standards than the criteria for performance and evaluation outlined in the course syllabus.
