Academic Forms

Academic Grievances: Final Grade Grievance Forms

Students are always encouraged to resolve academic issues directly, in an informal manner, with the member of the faculty, staff, or administration involved. If a student wishes to have an Undergraduate final grade reconsidered, the student must first meet with the instructor and attempt to resolve the difference. In no case will a grade be revised in accordance with criteria other than those applied to all students in the class. If no resolution can be reached with the instructor, the student may initiate a formal Final Grade Grievance.

Please refer to the current Academic Catalog for a detailed explanation of Final Grade Grievance procedures and deadlines. Questions regarding a Final Grade Grievance can also be addressed by academic advisors or the Senior Administrative Assistant to the Provost. Final Grade Grievance forms can be downloaded below.

Holidays & School Closings

Repeat Policy

All courses may only be repeated once. To determine whether a course may be repeated, a student who does not withdraw from a class prior to the financial aid “freeze date” is considered to have “taken” the course.

Freeze Date Information

On the freeze date, provided below, the number of hours for which you are enrolled on that day will be used to determine your financial aid eligibility for the applicable enrollment period. After each semester begins, your aid will be “frozen” on the following dates (for the applicable semester of enrollment for all sessions):

  • Fall 2013 Freeze Date: September 10, 2013
  • Spring 2014 Freeze Date: February 4, 2014
  • Summer 2014 Freeze Date: May 25, 2014

Financial Aid Freeze

Aid is determined by the student’s enrollment on the dates listed below. For courses that begin later in the term (Q or late summer sessions), you must be registered for the course(s) on the Freeze Date if you wish to be considered for aid for those credit hours.  Note: If you do register for a part of term class and receive aid based on that enrollment, and do not attend, your aid will be adjusted and you may owe the University money.

Remember, for aid, you must be enrolled for all sessions and part of term sessions, e.g. Q classes, all summer sessions, before the Freeze Date.
