Grades as submitted, to and recorded, in the Office of the Registrar are the sole judgment of the instructor. Grade changes resulting from personal appeals to the instructor and hardship claims are never honored. Students may not raise their grades by completing extra work after the final grade has been recorded. Occasional grading errors do occur, and these are always corrected promptly when properly certified to the Office of Graduate Studies. Students who believe a grade is unfair may file a departmental grade appeal (see "Appeals" in this chapter of the Bulletin).
