§ 7.9 Appeal of Grade
A student may appeal a grade by submitting a petition to the Dean alleging that the grade received was the result of capricious grading. Capricious grading constitutes either (1) assignment of a grade on the basis of factors substantially different from those previously announced, or (2) assignment of a grade to the petitioning student by resort to more exacting or demanding criteria than were applied to other students in that course. The judgment of an instructor in assessing the quality of a student's work is not appealable on other grounds. A student must file a grade appeal no more than 90 days after receiving the grade. Refer to §7.7.
