Policy 2215 - Procedures for Changing a Grade

WWW Posting Date: 1/15/2002

Responsible Office: Registrar's Office

Reference: Council of Academic Deans

In the event it should become necessary to change a student's grade because of error or other valid cause, the instructor must initiate the process using the “Request for Change of Grade” form. All grade changes, including the changing of an incomplete “I” grade, are processed using the grade change form. Forms are available in the academic Department offices and in the Registrar’s Office. The completed form should be signed by the instructor and routed to the Unit Head and College Dean for approval and signature prior to submission to the Registrar. The procedure should be expedited by all parties. Then, with the appropriate authorization, the Registrar’s Office will change the grade on the student’s official record and will distribute copies of the corrected grade report to the student, Unit Head and Dean.
