Students and faculty members should try to resolve grade problems informally. If no satisfactory solution is reached, the student has 30 Winthrop business days from the issuance of a grade report in which to initiate a formal written grade appeal to the appropriate department chair. After that time, it is assumed the grade report is correct; and it becomes a part of the student's permanent record. The department chair will address the case in writing. The student may appeal the chair's decision to the dean in writing. The dean will provide a decision in writing to the student within 30 Winthrop business days of receiving the appeal.
