Grades

Final grades are issued at the end of each term. Students can access their grades immediately after they are posted by the faculty, via ERAU Online Services (Log in to ERNIE, click on the Student Services tab in the upper right, then click on the Campus Solutions Student Center under Academics.)

The University is prohibited by federal law from releasing grade information without the express written authorization of the student. Students may grant online access to selected individuals if they desire via the student information system.

Written authorization must be granted each term because blanket authorizations are prohibited by law.

Grade Appeals and Grievances

Students who wish to appeal the final course grade must first communicate with the instructor to discuss and attempt to resolve the issue. The meeting must be arranged as soon as possible after final course grades have been issued.

The grounds for appeal may include suspected mathematical errors in computing the final grade or interpretation of the weighing of course performance elements. Except for the most unusual of circumstances, appeals challenging the academic judgment of the faculty are not acceptable.

If the dispute cannot be resolved within 30 days between the student and instructor, the student may initiate a written appeal online.

Students complete the student grade appeal / grievance form online, which is then reviewed by the relevant college.
