Title of Resolution
Original: The existing form reflects regulations published in the Faculty Handbook indicating changes of grades may be made only because of instructor’s error. In a variety of situations, a change of grade is necessary and neither the faculty member nor student is in error. I am proposing to change the policy to include the language: “changes of grades must include instructor explanation”.
As amended by Student Policies and Dr. Fox: Grade changes should usually be restricted to correcting errors in the instructor’s calculation of a student’s final grade. If the grade change is justified for a reason other than instructor error, a written explanation for the change is required. The College form used for submitting changes of grade to the Registrar will be redesigned to reflect this change in policy.”
