Grade Appeals

  • Please check with your instructor if you have any questions about your Spring ’23 final grade (which you’ll find in myBama no later than May 10).
  • 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 (
  • Spring 2023 grade appeals should be submitted no earlier than Wednesday, May 10, and no later than Wednesday, May 31. No appeals will be reviewed outside this time frame. All Spring ’23 appeals will be reviewed by Friday, June 2, 2023.
  • Please note: Midterm grades cannot be appealed.
