Grade Grievance


Formal grade appeals may be submitted to the Faculty Senate’s Grievance Committee.
A challenge to a grade may be pursued only on the basis of: malice, bias, arbitrary or capricious grade determination or impermissible discrimination.  All grade complaints must be filed within six weeks after the final grade has been issued in the course.  Prior to filing a complaint you must complete the following steps:

  1. Meet directly with the faculty member who issued the grade and discus your concern.
  2. If you are unable to resolve the difference you should then meet with the chair of the department or faculty member’s administrative supervisor.
  3. Please note that some colleges and/or departments have a unique set of procedures for grade appeal.  You are responsible for following college and/or departmental procedures prior to filing a complaint with the Student Welfare and Grievance Committee.
