Grade appeal procedure
If a student believes that he or she has received an unfair or erroneous grade, the student may appeal. The student must first consult with the instructor within 10 working days of his or receipt of the contested grade (that time may be extended in the event the instructor is shown to have been unavailable during the period following the student’s receipt of the grade in question). In the event that the student is still dissatisfied, he or she may appeal to the Dean of the relevant School or the Dean’s designee within 7 days. The Dean or designee shall consult with the Instructor before making any decision. The decision of the Dean or designee shall be final.
