Students who believe they have been unfairly graded have access to a formal review process. However, it is understood that faculty members have the right to determine grading policies for their classes and the expertise to evaluate student work unless substantive and objective evidence to the contrary is presented. Students should take the following steps to begin the formal grade appeal process:
- The Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and Director of Academic Affairs should be notified of the student's intent to proceed with a formal review.
- A written statement outlining the disagreement should be submitted to the relevant instructor.
- If denied by the instructor, a written statement should be submitted to Professor Mark Broadie, Vice Dean for Curriculum and Instruction, no later than one term after receiving the grade.
