University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Academic Regulations I. Reappraisal of Grades and Non-Disciplinary Academic Appeals I.3 Reappraisal of Final Grade
I.3 Reappraisal of Final Grade

In the reappraisal of a final grade, the only elements that will be considered are the grading of the final examination, if any, together with a recalculation of the weighted components that make up the final mark. An exception may occur when the Instructor of Record evaluates a piece of graded term work or other component at the end of the term; that grade may also be considered in a reappraisal of final grade.

A student wishing a reappraisal of an individual final grade should first attempt to examine the final examination at the department or faculty office. Then the student shall obtain a Reappraisal of Final Grade form from Enrolment Services. On that form the student is required to indicate exactly what error was made in marking the examination and/or in computing the final grade. The form will not be processed and the reappraisal will not take place unless the student provides a detailed rationale that outlines where and for what reason an error is suspected.

Students wishing a reappraisal of a final grade (excluding Law courses) must submit their request by the following dates:

Fall Term: March 1
Winter Term: June 30
Spring Intersession: August 15
Summer Term: October 15

The reappraisal form shall be submitted to Enrolment Services who shall forward it to the department head or Dean of the faculty offering the course. Reappraisals of final grades are dealt with by the head of the academic unit in consultation with members of staff. Normally, the department/faculty will respond to a Request for Reappraisal of Final Grade within thirty calendar days of its initiation. After the reappraisal is completed, the department shall return the form to the Registrar who shall inform the student in writing of the result of any request for reappraisal.

Students should be aware that the grade being reappraised may be raised, lowered or remain the same. A student may request a reappraisal of final grade only twice in one academic year (September 1 – August 31).
