Grade Challenges

Kellstadt participates in a university program that permits you to challenge grades received in individual courses by filing a Grade Challenge Form.

The details of the grade challenge procedure are described in the DePaul University Student Handbook. Before you file a challenge, please carefully consider whether your challenge meets the criteria that the Grade Challenge Committee uses to authorize a grade change. The committee has no additional authority.

The committee also is not an appropriate vehicle for general complaints about a course. To register a complaint, you can:

  • Discuss your concern with the instructor;
  • Discuss the matter with the appropriate department chair;
  • Discuss the matter with a counselor in the Kellstadt office; or
  • Write a letter describing your concern to the dean of the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.

While the actions above will not result in a grade change, please be assured that they will be taken into account in the business school's decision-making.
