Established departmental procedures will be utilized to resolve student grade appeals. After all other avenues have been exhausted; the student may request a review of the grade by the Vice-President for Instruction. Student grades are an academic matter; therefore, there is no further appeal beyond the Office of the Vice-President for Instruction.
