                   2.6.3 Appealing of Grades
                   The  course  Instructor  is the  authority  that  decides on  the  student’s  grade.  However,  if  a
                   student has strong evidence of unfairness, he/she has the right to submit a grade appeal
                   form  to  the  course  instructor.  If  the  student  is  not  satisfied  with  the  Instructor’s  ruling,
                   he/she may appeal to the Chair of the Department who will give a final ruling on the issue
                   after consulting with the faculty members of the Department.
