Grade Appeal Process

Grade Appeal

THE ONLINE APPEAL PROCESS SHOULD ONLY BE UTILZED IF YOUR GRADE APPEAL REQUEST HAS ALREADY BEEN DENIED BY THE DEPARTMENT OR SCHOOL OF YOUR MAJOR. COURSE(S) MUST BE HOUSED WITHIN THE COLLEGE OF APPLIED ARTS.

Listed below is the process for appeal grades earned within the College of Applied Arts:

1. Discuss your appeal with the instructor of the course (course must be housed within the College of Applied Arts). If the instructor approves your request, no further action is needed by the student. 

2. If the instructor denies your appeal request, you must discuss your appeal with the chair/director of the department/school offering the course.

3. If both the instructor and chair/director deny your request, the Dean of the College of Applied Arts will review your request. The Dean's decision is final.
