PLU is dedicated to fair and accurate appraisal of student coursework. When a disagreement over a final grade in a course occurs, the student should first pursue informal grade dispute resolution with the course instructor. If the informal procedure is unsuccessful, students may undertake the university’s formal grade dispute resolution procedure. However, no formal grade dispute procedure may be pursued when the course grade in question is less than one full letter grade (i.e., disagreements over A- versus B+). Additionally, this procedure allows for the review of student work to ensure that it is consistent with the course syllabus and/or assignment or exam grading rubric, but does not allow for disputing the content of a syllabus.
