Final Grade Disputes

Purpose of the Student Final Grade Dispute Process

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.

Role of the Student Final Grade Dispute Process

The request for review shall be presented to the Student Final Grade Resolution Committee by the student through the submission of the completed forms to the Campus President's office. These forms must be submitted electronically to the appropriate Campus President 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 Campus President 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.
