A student’s term and cumulative grade point averages are calculated based upon the point system. Multiply course credits by the point value of grade earned in the course to get the total point value for the course.

Term and cumulative grade point averages are determined in the following manner:

  • Add total course credit values.
  • Add total point values.
  • Divide total point value by total course credit value.

Grade appeals

This policy is intended for a student who believes that his/her final course grade is incorrect based on the course syllabus.  A formal Grade Appeal must be initiated after the course grade has been issued (since that is what is being appealed) but within fourteen calendar days of the next session or semester start.

The specific steps for initiating a Course Grade Appeal are:

  1. The student must first address the specific grading issues with the instructor of the course.  If the instructor is unavailable, the dean of the college (day school students) or academic coordinator (CPS/online students) will authorize an extension of time for the appeals process or will allow the student to proceed to Step 2.  This step must be initiated after the course grade has been issued but within fourteen calendar days of the next session or semester start.
  2. If discussion with the instructor does not resolve the problem, the student may appeal the decision of the instructor to the appropriate dean (day school students) or academic coordinator (CPS/online students) within 14 calendar days of the instructor’s decision.  To appeal, the student will prepare a formal Course Grade Appeal packet with documentation to support his/her request.  The formal Course Grade Appeal packet must state the student’s name, ID, the specifics of the grading issue, and the outcome of the initial meeting with the instructor.  The dean or academic coordinator will make a determination within 14 days of receiving the Course Grade Appeal packet.  A letter will be provided to the student from the dean or academic coordinator, informing him/her of the decision.
  3. Students may appeal the decision of the dean or academic coordinator by submitting an updated Course Grade Appeal packet to the Vice President for Academic Affairs (day school students) or the appropriate dean (CPS/online students). The updated Course Grade Appeal packet must include the information previously submitted to the dean or academic coordinator in Step 2, the documentation of the dean’s or academic coordinator’s decision, and any substantial new information. The Vice President of Academic Affairs or appropriate dean will make a determination within 14 days of receiving the updated Course Grade Appeal packet.  A letter will be provided to the student from the Vice President of Academic Affairs or the dean informing him/her of the decision.  All appeal decisions are final with the Vice President for Academic Affairs (day school students) or appropriate dean (CPS/online students).

Note:  If a student is dissatisfied with an individual grading event (such as an examination, paper, or project) he/she should meet with the instructor immediately for resolution.   If not resolved, the student should use individual grading events as evidence to support their request for a change in course grade.
