Contesting Grades

Students who wish to contest a grade should follow these steps within 90 days of receiving the grade or decision:


  1. Speak with the instructor involved and try to resolve the issue.
  2. If the issue cannot be settled satisfactorily with the instructor, meet with the dean in the appropriate academic division.  The dean will initiate a review within five working days and render a judgment in a timely fashion.
  3. If, after the dean has reviewed the situation, the student wishes to have another level of review, the student may appeal to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.  The Vice President for Academic Affairs will make a timely review of the situation with all involved parties.  At the end of this review, the judgement of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, which will be provided in writing, is final and binding.
