Academic Policy Appeals
Where special circumstances warrant, exceptions may be made to certain stated academic regulations of the university. Information concerning proper methods of appeal may be obtained from the Office of Student Experience.
Grade appeal procedures exist for students at the university who can demonstrate that inappropriate criteria have been used in evaluation or that an unfair interpretation of student work in light of stated criteria has been made. A formal appeal may only be initiated after an informal Change of Grade Request has been made to the instructor.
A Change of Grade Request should be dealt with promptly by the student and must be initiated no later than 30 days after the announced issuance of grades. For detailed information on grade appeal procedures, students should consult the Office of Student and Academic Services.
Should the student wish to challenge the outcome of the Change of Grade Request, s/he may submit a request for Grade Appeal.
Should the student wish to challenge the outcome of the Grade Appeal, s/he may request the convening of a Grade Review Panel. For detailed information on the Grade Review Panel, students should consult the Office of Student and Academic Services.
