A grade appeal may be initiated, provided that it is done within 30 calendar days following the end of that academic term in which the grade was assigned and provided further that one of the following three criteria is met:
1. That the grade received appears to be inconsistent with the performance of the work required and recorded for that course;
2. The grade is inconsistent with what has been recorded for the course;
3. The grade received was explicitly determined by criteria other than the stated criteria system for that course.
The appeal process must be initiated by consulting directly with the faculty member involved. No appeal will be further considered if this first step is not followed. If agreement is not reached at that point, however, the appeal may be submitted in writing by the student to the department chairperson(s) with fully supporting facts and documentation for review.
