This checklist was developed as a tool to aid the student in the completion of the Student Final Grade Resolution Committee review process (Procedure I E).
Student Final Grade Resolution Committee review process
1. The request for review shall be presented to the Student Final Grade Resolution Committee by the student through the submission of the completed forms (the Student Final Grade Resolution Checklist and Petition) to the Provost's office. These forms must be submitted electronically to the appropriate Provost within sixty (60) days after the final course grades are distributed to students from the Office of Admissions and Records via Atlas. Upon receipt of the electronic petition form, the Provost will notify the committee chair, who shall send copies of the form to the faculty member and the academic dean or other immediate supervisor of the faculty member.
2. The Student Final Grade Resolution Committee shall act only upon a complaint that a final course grade was assigned in an arbitrary or capricious manner, in violation of college policy, in substantial and material noncompliance with the course syllabus or other formal course-related materials, or was not calculated in accordance with the grading system as defined by the faculty member.
Please make sure you have completed the entire process before submitting the Student Final Grade Resolution Petition:
I have discussed my concern with my professor.
I have discussed my final grade with my professor's Dean or immediate supervisor.
The campus provides an independent and impartial resource person called an Ombudsman to provide guidance to students in understanding the Student Academic Dispute Resolution policy. I am aware of the opportunity to meet with the Ombudsman for assistance and will pursue this service if I think there is a need for clarification or support.
