Grade Appeal Form [PDF form, available for download]
Students have the right to appeal the final grade assigned for a course or program. Students must verify the grade with the course instructor to ensure that no error has been made. All reasonable steps possible should be taken by the student to resolve a grade dispute with the instructor before pursuing the formal appeal process. After attempting to resolve the dispute with the instructor, and within 30 calendar days of the exam day, the student wishing to appeal a final grade must fill out the Final Grade Appeal Form. Together with the Final Grade Appeal form, the student must present the following documents:
Students may contact the Student Affairs Officer to discuss the reasons for the appeal and the appeal process. Final grade appeal is accepted only if the reason(s) for the appeal is one of the following:
The Final Grade Appeal Form with the supporting documents MUST be submitted to the front desk of the campus where the course was offered (an appeal for a course offered in Burnaby Campus must be submitted in Burnaby campus, and vice versa).
Typical reasons why a final grade appeal can be cancelled or denied:
To start an appeal process, the Student Affairs Officer receives all relevant exams, assignments, and marks from the instructor and/or the student. The evidence will be carefully examined and, if the grounds for appeal are established, an independent instructor within the same subject area will be assigned to re-grade the student’s assignment or exam. As a result of the Grade Appeal, a final grade for the assignment / exam might be raised, lowered, or remain the same. Even if the assignment/exam grade has changed, this may result in no change to the final grade for the course.
