How can I appeal my final grade?

Before you appeal a grade, please read the policies and procedures regarding Grading and the Reconsideration of Grades. If you submit a grade appeal request, your course work may receive a lower grade, a higher grade, or the same grade after re-evaluation. Please note that failing grades are checked carefully and seldom result in higher grade except when a clerical error has occurred.

To appeal a grade:

1. Discuss your concerns with your course instructor. A Student who is seeking reconsideration of his/her final grade in a course is expected to raise his/her concern with the Instructor without delay, normally within 10 days of the release of the final grade. 

2. If your concerns cannot be resolved with the Course Instructor and you feel that your grade was unfairly assigned, you may submit a written appeal with supporting reasons to the Director of the Language Training Institute. A student submitting an appeal’s request to the Director must submit all original marked assignments and exams. Such a request will normally be submitted within 60 days of the release of grades.

3. If you feel the Department’s decision was inappropriate, you may submit an appeal in writing to the Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences. The decision of the Dean is final, subject only to an appeal to Senate.
