Alpha’s Academic Appeal is the student’s opportunity to seek fairness when they receive a grade that they believe does not reflect their efforts in a course. In following our appeal process, we expect the student to provide accurate information at all times. Failure to do so may result in discontinuation of the investigation and/or other penalties.
Grounds for an appeal:
•There was an error in calculating your grade
•Your grade does not reflect your academic performance or you were graded different from other students in the class
Not grounds for an appeal:
•GPA requirements or financial complications due to COVID-19
•Your instructor is a hard marker
•The assignment or test was too difficult
•You were disappointed with the mark because you put in a lot of effort
Reminder: Monday, October 9th, is the Thanks Giving Holiday and Alpha College will be closed.
