Grade Appeals Process
The TCC Course Grade Appeal Procedures are based on the following principles:
A student has a right to appeal a grade that the student believes was contrary to procedures as specified in the course syllabus or was assigned on some basis other than performance in the course, by using standards different from those applied by the same instructor to other students in the same course, or used different standards than what is listed on the syllabus of record.
A student’s grade should reflect the student’s mastery of the subject matter of the course.
Students are entitled to a fair and impartial evaluation of their work.
Students and faculty should communicate regularly and openly about course requirements, assignments, tests, grading procedures, and grades.
The college faculty is responsible for creating the curriculum and establishing the standards by which students will be evaluated in each course.
Faculty members are entitled to the presumption that the grades they assign are an accurate reflection of the performance of the students in their courses.
A course grade may only be changed by the course instructor or by the final recommendation of the Grade Appeal Board. College administrators may not alter any students’ grades.
Both students and faculty members have rights and responsibilities in the grading process:
Students who wish to appeal a final grade are responsible for demonstrating that the grade they received was contrary to procedures as specified in the course syllabus or was assigned on some basis other than performance in the course, by using standards different from those applied by the same instructor to other students in the same course, or used different standards than what is listed on the syllabus of record.
Report an Academic Concern
Procedures to Follow:
Please read the TCC Student Policies and Resources Handbook for information regarding procedures related to Student Complaints.
Schedule a meeting with your instructor. Before any action can be taken concerning a grade-related issue, the student should attempt to resolve the issue with the instructor, since faculty members are responsible for establishing the standards by which students will be evaluated in each course. The meeting may be during the instructor’s office hours or at another time such as before or after class. This meeting will give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns directly with the instructor – the person who can assist you in improving your performance, modify a grade in a grade dispute, or directly impact classroom instructional challenges. Keep a record of the dates and times of the meeting, or meetings, for documentation of steps taken toward a resolution. For non-grade-related issues or grade-related issues with additional factors, it is strongly recommended that the student attempt to resolve the issue with the instructor; however, depending on the nature of the concern, the student may begin this procedure with the academic school office listed on your course syllabus.
If grade disputes or classroom instructional challenges are not resolved during a meeting with your instructor, complete this Student Concern Form and return it to the appropriate academic school office per your course syllabus (it will promptly be forwarded to the appropriate school office). All concerns must be submitted in writing.
- Within ten working days of the submission of the Student Concern Form, the school office will contact and inform the student of actions taken. Because the instructor is an essential part of the instructional team, the instructor may be included to help resolve your concerns if the Dean or Department Chair deems it necessary. Every attempt will be made to ensure a fair resolution for all parties involved.
