Correcting a Grade
An instructor may correct a clerical error on a grade by filing a Change of Grade form with the Registrar’s Office. Requests for a grade change form should be made by the instructor directly to the Registrar’s Office. The form must be received by the Registrar’s Office within six months from the last day of the semester.
Appealing a Grade
After final grades have been filed in the Registrar’s Office, a grade in a course may be changed only by the course instructor. Appeals must be directed first to the instructor, then to the department chair, and to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. If the request remains unresolved at any of those levels, the student may file a grade grievance petition with the Academic Committee. The deadline to file an appeal is the last day of the subsequent semester.
All instructors are encouraged to retain records of completed course work and grades for a period of one calendar year from the date of the last day of the semester. Part-time, relocating, and retiring instructors should provide these materials to their respective departments.
