Grade Changes

See sample of Change of Grade Form (Form itself is pink)
Signature Flow Chart: Instructor - Department Chair - Dr. Zaharias (JH 170) - Grad College (Grad Course) or Registrars (Undergrad Course)

A faculty member may change a grade (1) because of an error in computation or (2) because of circumstances he or she deems “extraordinary” which bear on the appropriateness of the grade awarded. A student wishing a change of grade must contact the course instructor. If the instructor cannot be contacted, the student must contact the Chair/Director of the Department/School in which the course was offered. If the instructor (or, in the absence of the instructor the Chair/Director) agrees that the course grade should be changed, the following procedure must be followed.

Change of grade forms must be used to request that posted grades be changed. The instructor of record in the course in which the grade was awarded MUST sign the change of grade form. In the event that the instructor of record cannot sign the form (e.g., because s/he has left the university or cannot be contacted), the change of grade form may be signed, instead, by the Chair/Director of the Department/School in which the course was offered. In all cases, the Dean of the College in which the course was offered must also sign the change of grade form. All courses 500-level and above must be sign by Dean of Graduate College. Change of grade forms must be filed no later than the last day of class (not including exam week) of the second semester following the semester in which the course was offered.

If the instructor does NOT agree that the grade should be changed, the student may initiate a grade dispute.
