Students who feel they received a final grade that does not reflect their performance have the option to file an appeal.
A grade appeal includes any appeal of a final grade (pass-fail or letter grade) for a:
- field experience
- student teaching
- internship or externship
(Appeals of an involuntary removal from a course in the middle of a term would be subject to departmental or program procedures, not the grade appeal process, unless a failing grade was issued.)
Students considering an appeal of a final grade are encouraged to submit a formal written grade appeal form to the Office of the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs.
Please review Ball State University’s policy on grade appeals before submitting a request form.
