13.6 Grade Reviews: Gross procedural irregularity / exam maladministration
A student may submit a request for a Grade Review to the Dean of Students or the Deputy Dean in the event that a grade may be adversely affected by a gross procedural irregularity, by non-academic criteria, or by an exam maladministration. For example, such irregularities could include a failure of exam software, an improper procedure being followed, or an approved accommodation not being properly implemented. All grade review requests related to gross procedural irregularity other than exam maladministration must be submitted by the first day of classes of the first full quarter after the grade has been received (e.g. for an Autumn quarter grade that is posted in Winter, then the deadline for the grade review request will be the first day of the subsequent Spring quarter). Upon receipt of the request, the Dean of Students or Deputy Dean will review the student’s submission and any other relevant items. The Dean of Students or Deputy Dean may also interview the relevant instructor, administrators, or other individuals. The Dean of Students or Deputy Dean will respond to the student’s grade review request within three weeks (15 working days) from the receipt of the request, if practicable. The decision by the Dean of Students or the Deputy Dean shall be final and is not subject to review by the Dean or any other administrators. Note: in the event that the Dean of Students or Deputy Dean does determine that non-academic criteria were used in the process of grading, the student may be offered an opportunity to receive a grade of “P**” to indicate passing in lieu of the original grade submitted by the instructor if warranted.
