Grade Appeals

  • If you are assigned a grade of NC and don’t understand why, first speak to your instructor for an explanation of why you earned this grade.
  • After that, if you feel there are extenuating circumstances, you may appeal your grade. Note that an appeal is a carefully argued request to change a grade; it is not a guarantee of a grade change.
  • Fall 2022 grade appeals can be filed from Dec 10, 2022 to Dec 31, 2022. Appeals must be submitted during this time frame. If you submit an appeal prior to or after these dates, it will not be reviewed.
  • To appeal your grade, download the FWP Grade Appeal Form, provide the required information, and e-mail the form to Dr. Luke Niiler, Director of First-Year Writing (lpniiler@ua.edu).
