TO BE PROCESSED, ALL OF THE FOLLOWING MUST BE COMPLETED:
A GRADE APPEAL - Students who wish to appeal a grade must first consult the instructor concerned within
one month of receiving the grade and, if unsatisfied, should then consult the appropriate Chairperson and
Dean. If the problem is still unresolved, students may forward the appeal to the Committee on Academic
Appeals. This must be done in writing, through the Registrar, within three months from the last day of
the semester in which the course is taken.
A NON-GRADE APPEAL - On appeals other than those for a change of grade, normally within one month
of the event or the decision being received by the student, the student shall submit the appeal in writing
and direct it to the Committee on Academic Appeals through the Registrar.
