Grade Change and Appeal Policy

If a student has a question or concern about a grade the student received, the student should contact the faculty member to discuss or to seek clarification. Faculty members are encouraged to provide feedback and clarification. A faculty member may correct a mathematical or calculation error; however, faculty members may not re-evaluate a student’s work. In the event that a faculty member changes a grade, the faculty member must document the change and notify the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs about it.

Appeal of a grade is available only as to a final grade in a course. A petition for appeal of a final grade must be based on the grounds that the grade was assigned arbitrarily, was based on prejudice, or was assigned in error (that is, mathematical error or mistake of fact). Under the policy, when a student wishes to appeal a final grade in a course, "the student should first arrange a formal meeting with the instructor to discuss the student's concern." 

Grades through final grades for fall 2015 are governed by UNT Dallas policy 7.007 approved 8/26/2010. For more detail, see UNT Policy 7.007. For purposes of this policy, the Department Chair is the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs of the College of Law.

All grades beginning with final grades for spring 2016 are governed by UNT Dallas policy 7.007 revised 6/30/2015. For more detail, see UNT Policy 7.007. For purposes of this policy, the Department Chair is the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs of the College of Law.
