Grade Appeals

Students may appeal a grade in a course when circumstances beyond their control have impacted their performance in the course. The grounds for appeal are: medical, compassionate, course management, and prejudice. However, students are obligated to notify and consult with either the course instructor or program director, depending on the situation, as soon as circumstances arise that are likely to affect academic performance. Failure to do so may jeopardize an appeal made at a later date.

To appeal a final grade, continuing education students must follow the Academic Appeals Process and complete the Grade Appeal Form available at ryerson.ca/senate/Forms.html, or at The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education office, Heaslip House, 297 Victoria Street. Completed appeals must be submitted to The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education office, Heaslip House, 297 Victoria Street, within the deadline to submit appeals.

If a student believes that there is an error in the grading of a test, assignment, or exam, they should contact the instructor to discuss the issue within 10 working days of the date when the graded work is returned to the class. This is not a matter for appeal, but a formal request for a grade re-evaluation.

See the Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals Policy for details.
