Grade appeals by any student in any campus division/program of study concerning individual assignments, test grades, and/or final course grades may be made to the Dean of Academic Affairs by the following procedure:

  1. The student meets with the faculty member/instructor, who explains why the student received the grade.
  2. If, after meeting with the faculty member, the student is not satisfied that the assigned grade is accurate, the student may appeal, in writing, to the Dean of Academic Affairs within two weeks of the grade being posted.
  3. The Dean of Academic Affairs reviews the appeal and makes a recommendation to the faculty member within one week of receipt of the appeal.

The faculty member’s decision is final. The student will be notified by the Dean of Academic Affairs of the decision, in writing, immediately.
