Grade Appeal and Academic Grievance Procedure for Graduate Students of The Judith Herb College of Education
An academic grade appeal is one in which a graduate student disputes a particular grade.  An academic grievance involves an alleged instance of inappropriate academic behavior.  Appeals dealing with sexual harassment or academic dishonesty, including but not limited to cheating or plagiarism, are explicitly exempt from this process and shall be dealt with under the relevant University policies and procedures.

Any academic grade appeals or academic grievances must be initiated within the semester following the receipt of the contested grade or alleged behavior not including summer. 

Steps of the Academic Grade Appeal and Academic Grievance

  1. Verbally discuss the grade or troublesome behavior with the instructor involved.  

  2. If a verbal attempt to resolve the problem fails, the student may initiate the appeal/grievance process through a written request for reconsideration to the instructor within 7 days.  The instructor must provide a written response to the student within 7 days.

  3. If no mutually agreeable resolution can be achieved, either party may present in writing his/her position to the chair of the department within 7 days for a grade appeal or within 30 days for an academic grievance.  Either the student or the faculty member may provide the chair with relevant information.  The chair must provide a written determination within 14 days.

  4. If the problem is not resolved at the department level, either party may appeal in writing to the Dean’s designee, the Associate Dean for Graduate Education.  Following the chair’s determination, a written request for a resolution must be made to the Associate Dean within 14 days for a grade appeal or within 30 days for an academic grievance.  The Associate Dean shall review all relevant documentation and may interview the student and faculty member involved.  The Associate Dean may request a recommendation from the Academic Affairs Committee.  If no resolution can be reached within 14 days of the request for a resolution, the  Dean will issue a decision. 

  5. The  Dean’s decision may be appealed by either the student or the faculty member to the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies within 14 days for a grade appeal or 30 days for an academic grievance.  See the COGS Grade Appeal Procedure for Graduate Students or the Academic Grievance for the procedures that apply beyond the JHCOE.
