Academic Appeals Procedure

A student who seeks to appeal a grade must follow the academic chain of authority (Instructor – School Dean – Dean of Instruction – Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs – Chancellor). Grades assigned for course assignments, tests, quizzes, projects, etc. must be challenged within two weeks of receiving the grade. Semester grades must be challenged within the first two weeks of the semester following the awarding of the grade. The student is responsible for moving through the process as expeditiously as possible.

Should the appeal be elevated to the Dean of Instruction, the student must submit the Academic Appeals Form below.

This form must be accompanied by a letter detailing what steps have been taken previously to resolve the issue, an explanation of why previous decisions are still being appealed, and documentation in support of the continued appeal.
