Final Grade Appeal
As a student you have the right to appeal decisions and practices that affect your academic standing, according to the Final Grade Appeals Policy (#217). If you disagree with your final grade assigned in a particular course and have grounds for appeal, you may file a formal appeal. The grounds for appealing a grade include:
- A significant error in the assessment, evaluation, determination and/or calculation of the final grade;
- A significant error in the assessment, evaluation, determination and/or calculation of individual components of the course;
- Credible claims of instructor bias or discrimination;
- Failure by the instructor to follow the evaluation profile, grade assignment, and operational details as stated in the course syllabus;
- Extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control that affected the student’s academic performance or made it impossible for the student to write
