Grade Reports, Incomplete Grades and Grade Appeals
Students can access grades and print a copy of their grade report at my.tmcc.edu approximately one week after the end of term. To receive a complete summary of their academic history, students should request an official transcript.
Every student has a right to receive a grade assigned upon a fair and unprejudiced evaluation based on a method that is neither arbitrary nor capricious; and the purpose of the Grade Appeal Policy is to provide the student with a safeguard against receiving an unfair final grade, while respecting the academic responsibility of the instructor. Thus, this policy recognizes that:
- Instructors have the right to assign a grade based on any method that is professionally acceptable, submitted in writing to all students, and applied equally.
A grade appeal shall be confined to charges of unfair action toward an individual student and may not involve a challenge of an instructor’s grading standard.
This policy does not cover instances where students have been assigned grades based on academic dishonesty or academic misconduct. For grade appeals alleging discrimination, harassment or retaliation in violation of TMCC’s Sexual Harassment Policy, please contact the Equity and Inclusion Office.
A student who wishes to appeal the grade must do so within 90 days of the official ending date of class. The academic dean’s decision on a grade appeal is final.
