Students who feel they received a final grade that does not reflect their performance have the option to file an appeal.

A grade appeal includes any appeal of a final grade (pass-fail or letter grade) for a:

  • course
  • field experience
  • clinical
  • student teaching
  • practicum
  • internship or externship

(Appeals of an involuntary removal from a course in the middle of a term would be subject to departmental or program procedures, not the grade appeal process, unless a failing grade was issued.)

Students considering an appeal of a final grade are encouraged to submit a formal written grade appeal form to the Office of the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs.

Please review Ball State University’s policy on grade appeals before submitting a request form.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding the grade appeal policy, please contact Dr. Kristen McCauliff or Ben Sapet at 765-285-3716.
