The process of appealing grades is straightforward, once you know the structure:

Instructor > Program Coordinator > Dean

If you’re looking to appeal, the first place to start is with your instructor. Approach your instructor respectfully with your concerns and try to work towards a solution. If you’re uncomfortable approaching your instructor, talk to your Program Coordinator instead.

If you are unsatisfied with the outcome of discussions with your instructor, then speak with your Program Coordinator. You can choose whether you want the instructor to attend this meeting, but the instructor and the Program Coordinator are required to discuss the issue.
Step 3 is talking to the Dean. You head to this step if the discussion with your Program Coordinator hasn’t resolved your concerns.

An appeal meeting can be set up with the Dean, who will then meet with instructors and coordinators.

Different grade appeals follow different procedures. If they are interim grades, appeals can be made informally to the instructor, then to the Program Coordinator. For final grades, an informal appeal is filed to the instructors, and then with the Program Coordinator.

If the result is unsatisfactory, formal appeals are made by a written submission to the registrar within 30 calendar days of term end. (Apprentices have 10 days after receiving their mark.)

A fee of $35 accompanies the appeal, which is refunded if the appeal is successful. The appeal then moves to the Dean, who – in consultation with the student and their instructor – re-evaluates the mark.

The Dean will make the final decision, and the individual appealing the grade will be informed of the decision within 10 business days.
