The Grade Appeals Committee, elected by the faculty, was established in accordance with procedures specified by the faculty of the University at the West Lafayette campus. The full details of the procedure are given in University Regulations.
A student wishing to file a grade appeal within the College of Engineering must file a written statement of allegations, facts, and circumstances concerning the grade assigned with the chairperson of the Grade Appeals Committee within 30 calendar days after the start of the regular semester following the one in which the questioned grade was given.
The chairperson will furnish a copy of the statement to the involved instructor who has seven days to make a response.
Committee members will review the written documents within seven calendar days from the date they are received. If one voting member of the committee rules that the allegations warrant a hearing or are best addressed through a hearing, a hearing will be held; otherwise, the appeal will be denied.
More information on this process can be found in Regulations Governing Student Conduct, Disciplinary Proceedings, and Appeals. For students and faculty involved in a grade appeal, please review Suggestions to Students Preparing a Grade Appeal (PDF). Appeals may be filed online through our Grade Appeal Form.
