If a student believes he or she has received an incorrect or unfair grade, that student should contact the appropriate instructor, no later than one full semester after receiving the grade in question, to attempt to resolve the disagreement. If the student and faculty member resolve that disagreement to their mutual satisfaction, no further proceedings are necessary. If the student and faculty member are unable to resolve the disagreement to their mutual satisfaction the full appeal process can be found at: 

In the case of extenuating circumstances (such as injury, illness, or death of an immediate family member), you may appeal your suspension to the Financial Aid Office. The appeal form must be submitted with documentation detailing the circumstances that prevented you from making satisfactory academic progress, and shows how the issues have been resolved.
