Students wishing to appeal a grade must follow the procedure detailed in the "Final Grade Appeal Procedure" page available from the Office of Academic Affairs (http://www.academicaffairs.appstate.edu/). Below is a summary of the steps involved. Students should obtain and follow the detailed steps in the appeal procedure document as soon as possible after the grade is assigned.
- The student should first attempt to resolve the issue with the course instructor.
- If the student is unable to reach an agreement with the instructor, the student must file the written appeal with the department chair within 14 calendar days after consulting with the instructor.
- If there is failure to reach an agreement through consultation with the chair, the student may file the written appeal with the Grade Appeals Committee through the Dean of the academic college or school in which the grade was awarded. The student must file this written appeal within 30 calendar days after the beginning of classes in the next semester after the contested grade was awarded.
