How to Appeal a Grade
If you believe you've received a grade based on nonacademic criteria such as discrimination, you can appeal the grade.
- Decide if you have grounds to appeal your grade.
- You may have grounds for appeal if you believe you have received a grade based on nonacademic criteria, including:
- Ethnic origin
- Try to resolve the problem.
- Try to resolve the problem with your instructor.
- If you can't resolve the problem with your instructor, you can submit a written appeal to the chair of the department offering the class.
- If you aren't satisfied with the results of the written appeal to the department chair, you can submit a written appeal to the most appropriate individual: your college provost, the Graduate Studies dean, the School of Medicine dean, or the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences dean.
- If you aren't satisfied with the results of the appeal to the provost or dean, you can submit a written appeal to the Committee on Educational Policy's Subcommittee on Grade Appeals by the last day of instruction of the next quarter.
