Policy: "When a final course grade other than Incomplete (I) is officially reported by the instructor at the end of an academic term, the grade is recorded by the Office of the Registrar and can be changed only if the grade has been assigned arbitrarily or impermissibly as defined in the Faculty’s 'Policy and Procedures for Student Appeals of Final Course Grades,' available online at http://legal.uncc.edu/policies/GradeAppeal.html. [...] [The grade appeal policy] requires the student to discuss the grade with the instructor as soon as possible after the grade is received. Students should note, however, that the University is not obliged to respond to a grade appeal unless the student files it with the appropriate department chairperson or interdisciplinary program director within the first four weeks following the last day of the regular semester or the summer term in which the grade was received. When a grade is assigned consistent with University policy, only the instructor has the right to change the grade except as provided in the Incomplete grade policy. When an instructor reports a grade change for a grade other than I, the 'Change of Grade' form must be approved by his/her department chair and college dean."
Resolution: Review closely the undergraduate catalog's policies regarding grade appeals, and learn about when it is appropriate to initiate a grade appeal, and how to do so, from the Grade Appeal Guide.
