Appeals Process:
Prior to submitting your appeal to the Vice President & Dean for Academic Affairs, you must complete
the first two steps of the appeals process as outlined below:
Step 1 – Try to resolve the course grade grievance with your instructor. This can be conducted by
emailing your instructor and scheduling a meeting to discuss your grievance with her/him.

Step 2 – If you cannot resolve the grade grievance with your instructor, your next step will be to submit
your grievance in writing to the Dean of the School in which the course resides (see list below). Once
the School Dean reviews your grievance, he/she will contact you to set up a meeting to discuss his/her
decision.

Academic Affairs and a meeting will be set up to further discuss your appeal. If no further discussion is
necessary, you will receive a written judgement regarding your appeal, via your Reinhardt University
student email, and the final judgement will be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office for recording.
Please allow 60 to 90 days for the appeals process.
