Once a grade has been reported to the registrar, it cannot be changed without approval by the dean. To obtain approval for changing a grade, the instructor submits to his or her dean an explanation for the requested change and what the new grade should be.
The change will be approved only if the instructor is able to state that an error in computation or some similar kind of error has occurred. If health or other factors have affected performance, students should inform instructors in a timely fashion prior to submission of grades. Health related issues may result in a grade of “incomplete.”
