FELC Grade Appeal Policy

The process by which a student may appeal a grade received in a course at Franklin English Language College is as follows:

Procedure for Grade Appeal:

  1. If a student is dissatisfied with a grade received and can provide evidence that a higher grade is warranted he/she should discuss with his/her instructor.  The instructor will reconsider the grade and, if warranted, assign a different grade.
  2. If the student is not satisfied with the outcome of his/her appeal to the instructor, he/she should submit a written appeal to the Senior Educational Administrator.
  3. The Senior Educational Administrator will obtain a copy of the assignment/test in question from the instructor and will have another instructor re-assess the test.   
  4. If the student achieves a higher grade on re-assessment, the higher grade will be assigned to the student.  If the student achieves a lower grade on re-assessment, the original grade will be retained.
  5. The grade will be considered final and cannot be appealed.
  6. The decisions on the grade appeal will be provided to students within 30 school days of FELC’s receipt of the written appeal.
