A student who believes that a grade has been reported incorrectly should consult the instructor for correction of a possible error. In exceptional cases, the student may contest the grade record through a written appeal to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, whose decision in the matter shall be final. Copies of all relevant information must accompany this written appeal: papers, tests, syllabi, etc. The deadline for contesting a grade is the end of the second week of the following term. In the case of a spring semester or term four course, the deadline for contesting a grade shall be the end of the second week of term one of the following academic year.
