Grade Appeals

Students who wish to file a grade appeal for courses taught within the College of Humanities should refer to the University’s Grade Appeal Policy. Starting in June 2020, requisite forms will no longer be provided by the COH Dean’s Office. Students can initiate the process using the instructions provided by the Office of the Registrar.
