Grade Changes Policy

Students anticipating a grade change may view their online grade report daily to confirm whether or not a grade change has been processed.

Only the instructor(s) assigned to teach a course may award or change grades for that course.  "Change of Grade" forms are not to be released directly to students.  Instructors will obtain the "Change of Grade" form from the College or department office. 

For the first year after a course is completed, the course instructor alone has the responsibility to change any grade that was erroneously reported, even if that year extends beyond a student's certification for graduation.  After one (1) year, and for three (3) additional years or until graduation (whichever comes first), the instructor may change undergraduate grades only with the College's authorization. 

Any undergraduate grade change sought after the above deadlines requires the approval of the University Grading Appeals Panel. 

Grades for graduate research credit do not require a second signature.
