Changes in Officially Recorded Grades
If an instructor requests a grade change after the Registrar has recorded it, the reasons for the request are to be presented to the Vice President for Academic Affairs or the Vice President’s Designated Representative. This does not refer to a grade change resulting from incorrect mathematical calculations, transposition of numbers, or a grade of incomplete or in progress.
If a student wishes to challenge a course grade, the student should discuss the matter with the faculty member no later than 30 days after the end of the term in which the grade was given. If no satisfactory solution is reached, the student should arrange a meeting with the Department Chair, the faculty member, and the student. If the matter is still not resolved, the Vice President for Academic Affairs or the Vice President’s designated representative becomes involved as an unofficial mediator. If neither of these steps results in a solution the student views as satisfactory, the student may choose to drop the issue or to lodge a complaint with the Faculty Chair, who will appoint an ad hoc committee to review the case. The final decision regarding grades always remains with the faculty member.
All grade corrections must be finalized within 45 days of the end of the term in which the grade was given.
Albertus Magnus College academic records are sealed 45 days after the conferral of a degree. After this date, changes to majors, minors and concentrations, addition of honors, removal of incompletes, grade changes or other changes to an academic record cannot be made.
If a student chooses to repeat a course after their degree is conferred, the last enrollment will be recorded on the transcript, but the degree G.P.A. will not change.
