Right of Appeal Related to Course Grades Received

All grade appeals must be initiated no later than the first calendar day of the next regularly scheduled semester or by the census date (10% point) of the next term in which the student is enrolled, whichever comes first.

The following procedure is to be utilized.

  1. The student will contact the instructor to determine that there has been no mistake and to present his or her case.
  2. In the event of no resolution, the student will, within one calendar week, contact the Division Chair, Director, or supervisor who will consider the appeal and render judgment within one calendar week.
  3. In the event of no resolution with the instructor’s supervisor, the student will, within one calendar week, contact the appropriate Vice President, who will require both the instructor and the student to present their cases. Upon completion of said presentations, the Vice President will render judgment within one calendar week.
  4. Decisions obtained by this process will be recognized as final.

Exceptions to the aforementioned timelines must be approved by the appropriate Vice President.
