Only final posted grades may be appealed beyond the professor.
Appeals are accepted only when the grade assigned conflicts with:
- The published grading rubrics for the course assignments
- Written communication (e.g., email, announcements, etc.)
- Calculation error on an assignment (resulting in a change to the final grade)
Appeals, other than those mentioned above, will not be reviewed. The student must provide written documentation that demonstrates the occurrence of one or more of the above grounds for appeal. Documentation may be in the form of email correspondence, graded assignments, proof of timely submission, etc. After submitting the appeal, if additional information is needed, the student will be notified via his/her Liberty Webmail.
To ensure that students understand the expectations set forth by the University regarding the grade appeal process.
