How to Assign or Change Grades
Grades are given by faculty members, and a change of grade should be given only by the faculty member who gave the original grade (if this is not possible, contact the department). Students who feel they have earned a grade different from the one given are referred to the course instructor. If that instructor concludes that the officially recorded final grade should be changed, the instructor will make corrections on the Change of Grade Form which is available in the departmental office. After the instructor signs the Form, the department chairperson signs and forwards the Form to the dean of the college. The dean signs it and forwards the original and all copies to the Office of Registration and Academic Progress. Once the change has been made on the student’s academic transcript, the student will be notified and all copies of the Form are sent to the appropriate individuals.
