DCCC instructors should make sure that they have the following blurb regarding Grade Appeal on their course syllabus within the Academic Integrity Policy Page:
Final Course Grade Appeal
Students are encouraged to discuss their progress in the course throughout the semester and should discuss any concerns they have regarding grades on assignments with the instructor. On occasion, circumstances may arise in which a student should have the opportunity to appeal the final course grade. If a student believes that the final course grade is inaccurate, the student should contact the faculty member who assigned the grade within five (5) business days of the posting of that semester’s grade. Please refer to the Final Course Grade Appeal Process in the General Catalog and Student Handbook. NOTE: Individual assignment/test grades are not appealable.
