Grade Appeals

Students may appeal a grade in a course when circumstances beyond their control have impacted their performance in the course.

The grounds for appeal are:

  • medical
  • compassionate
  • course management
  • prejudice

You are obligated to notify and consult with either the course instructor or program director, depending on the situation, as soon as circumstances arise that are likely to affect academic performance. Failure to do so may jeopardize an appeal made at a later date.

How to Appeal

NEWEffective January 12, 2021, Continuing Education (CE) students must submit academic grade appeals through the online academic appeals portal on Toronto Metropolitan University’s Senate website.

Refer to the Policy 134 - Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals and Policy 168 - Grade and Standing Appeals for details.

If you believe there is an error in the grading of a test, assignment, or exam, you should contact the instructor to discuss the issue within 10 working days of the date when the graded work is returned to the class. This is not a matter for appeal, but a formal request for a grade re-evaluation.
