Grade Changes

Final grade change policies

  • No changes of a final grade may be made on the basis of revision or submission of additional work after the close of the semester.
  • A final grade may be corrected when a clerical (recording) error or procedural error has occurred. 
  • An instructor approved grade change is required to change all NR and I grades.
