Grade Change Form

(Restricted Access, e-mail request only)

The University recognizes the prerogative of the faculty to set standards of performance and to apply them to individual students.  The University will seek to correct injustices to students, but at the same time, believes that the instructor’s judgment at the time that the original grade is assigned is better than a later reconsideration of an individual case.  Equity to all students is of fundamental concern.

Lecturers are required to submit evaluation documents into a Working Action Personnel File (WPAF) and are responsible for understanding the WPAF evaluation procedures and timelines for submission.

If you are required to submit a WPAF, you will be sent details and dates for the evaluation process, along with copies of the evaluation policies.  The frequency, depth and timing of the evaluations depends on your contract status (one-semester, one-year, three-year and part- or full-time). Student evaluations are required for all lecturers and will become part of your Working Personnel Action File (WPAF). Please consult the School of Education Director should any questions arise regarding lecturer evaluation procedures and policies.
