UT Tyler Academic Grievance Policy

Academic related grievances, such as disputes regarding grades, must be initiated by contacting the instructor who assigned the grade within sixty (60) days.

If the student is not satisfied with the decision, the student may appeal in writing to the appropriate chairperson of the department from which the grade was issued. Grade Appeal forms are available in the Dean's Office. Grievances may then be appealed to the Academic Dean, and finally the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Note: Grade Appeals are processed by, and Grade Appeal forms are obtained from, the individual academic Colleges. Grade Appeal forms and are not available at the Enrollment Services Center.


Appeals submitted to the Student Appeals Committee are separate from this policy.
