Students may appeal a grade awarded in a course or as a final course grade using the grade appeal procedure. Students may request a grade appeal through the course instructor, a student services counselor or through the online grade appeal request form. A grade appeal request must be made within ten business days after the grade is posted or the student forfeits the right to appeal. The appeal process includes an informal review followed by a formal review if the informal review fails to reach a resolution. The results of the formal review are final.
