Grade Appeal

APP students who believe there is a mistake in their final grade can appeal the grade using the following procedures. The Grade Appeal form is available on Moodle.


Steps for Students:

  1. Students who disagree with a final grade must contact the instructor within two days of receiving the grade, and the instructor and student should attempt to resolve the problem. 
  2. If the issue is not resolved, the student can email an appeal to the Deputy Director, explaining the nature of the complaint. The student must meet with the Deputy Director and provide all graded papers from the course to demonstrate that a calculation error by the instructor or the failure to record one or more grades resulted in the incorrect final grade in the course. Providing all graded material to support the appeal is a requirement of the process. This letter and meeting with the Deputy Director should be completed within one week of grades being posted on SONIS.
  3. The Deputy Director will review the case and email a response to the student with a copy to the instructor and Registrar to be placed in the student’s file. The Deputy Director’s decision is final and may not be appealed.
