Grade Appeals

Students may appeal a grade in a course when circumstances beyond their control have impacted their performance in the course.

The grounds for appeal are:

  • medical
  • compassionate
  • course management
  • prejudice

You are obligated to notify and consult with either the course instructor or program director, depending on the situation, as soon as circumstances arise that are likely to affect academic performance. Failure to do so may jeopardize an appeal made at a later date.

How to Appeal

To appeal a final grade, you must follow the Academic Appeals Process and complete the Grade Appeal Form. Grade Appeal forms are available online on the Senate Office website.

You may also pick up a printed copy at The Chang School office, Heaslip House, 297 Victoria Street. Completed appeals must be submitted to The Chang School office, Heaslip House, 297 Victoria Street, within the deadline to submit appeals.

If you believe there is an error in the grading of a test, assignment, or exam, you should contact the instructor to discuss the issue within 10 working days of the date when the graded work is returned to the class. This is not a matter for appeal, but a formal request for a grade re-evaluation.

Refer to the Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals Policy for details.
