In accordance with the Academic Appeals Policy of the University of Oklahoma, a student may appeal a grade based on 1) prejudiced or capricious evaluation or 2) the instructor's allegedly inability to speak the English language to the extent necessary to adequately instruct students. In cases of evaluation made known to the student during the semester, the deadline for notifying the instructor is 15 regular class days. For end-of-term evaluations, a student must contact the instructor by September 15 for grades received for the spring semester or summer term and February 15 for grades received for the fall semester.
If resolution is not reached with the instructor, the student should consult with the department chair and attempt to resolve the issue at the department level. If the student does not believe the issue was satisfactorily resolved at the department level, the student may submit a written appeal to the College of Arts and Sciences Academic Services office.
