After the final grade submission deadline, grades may be changed only for the following reasons:
- No grade was submitted by the deadline.
- A calculation error was made in computing the grade.
- The wrong grade was posted.
- An Incomplete grade contract was finalized.
- The previous grade was re-evaluated, but no additional work was submitted.
A grade change should not be submitted if a student completes any additional work beyond the end of the semester. If extenuating circumstances exist, an incomplete grade may be granted if requested before the grade submission deadline.
A submitted grade typically cannot be changed to a W (Official Withdrawal). Students who had a non-academic emergency may file a petition for withdrawal with Enrollment Services.
In addition to changing a student’s semester and cumulative GPAs, a grade change may also change a student’s total earned credits. A grade change may also positively or negatively impact a student’s academic standing.
Grade change requests may only be submitted by the instructor or an authorized designee via the College’s approved grade change process. Grade change requests older than one year are additionally reviewed by the Director of Academic & Institutional Assessment and typically are not approved.
