Grade Appeals

  • Please check with your instructor if you have any questions about your Spring ’24 final grade (which you’ll find in myBama no later than May 7, 2024).
  • You may appeal your final grade to the Director of First-Year Writing, should you wish. Note that an appeal is a thoughtfully reasoned request to change a grade. It is not an opportunity to rant, nor does it guarantee a grade change.
  • Download the FWP Grade Appeal Form, provide the required information, and e-mail the form to Dr. Luke Niiler (
