A corrected grade may be submitted by the instructor for a course taken in a previous semester to correct a mistake made in calculating or recording a grade for a particular student. Each student is responsible for checking the semester grade report for accuracy immediately upon receipt and for informing the instructor of any course in which the student suspects an error has been made in grading. Each instructor is responsible for checking the semester grade list on e-Lion after grades have been recorded for a previous semester.
If an error in calculating or recording a grade is brought to an instructor's attention, the instructor may request a grade change authorization form to correct the error. This form must be signed by the instructor. No grade change can be made more than one year after the end of the semester in which the course was taken.
When a course instructor is no longer available to resolve an error in calculating or recording a grade, the instructor's department head is authorized to take the necessary action.
