Grade Appeals

Any student considering an appeal on a final course grade should understand that each faculty member has the academic freedom and responsibility to determine grades according to any method chosen by the faculty member that is professionally acceptable, communicated to everyone in the class, and applied to all students equally. However, discriminatory, arbitrary, or capricious academic evaluation by a faculty member is a violation of a student’s rights and is the only valid ground for a final course grade appeal. 

For more information about grade appeals, visit the UNCW Academic Catalogue.

Reinstatement - Previously Academically Ineligible or Dismissed

If you were declared academically ineligible or dismissed when you last attended UNCW, the University Committee on Academic Reinstatement must review your reenrolling application.
