Assessment of student performance in the form of grades requires professional judgment by teaching faculty and academic staff. Students who feel they have received an incorrect or invalid grade should contact the instructor directly.
Recognizing that the evaluation of student performance is based on the professional judgment of the instructor, a grade change will only be considered if based on one or more of the following factors:
- An error was made in the grade computation
- The grading was based on factors other than those stated in the course syllabus
- The grading was based on factors that were prejudicial or capricious.
The student shall bear the burden of proof in establishing the existence of the above factor(s). The appeal of a grade must be made within one year of the time the grade was assigned.
