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 Services link in the upper right, click on Campus Solutions in left menu, then Campus Solutions Student Center.)

The University is prohibited by federal law (FERPA) from releasing grade information without the express written authorization of the student. Students may grant online auxiliary access to any designated individuals via the student information system. Auxiliary access is “view only” and does not permit the person who has been granted auxiliary access to act as an agent of the student, or to act upon the student’s behalf.

Grade Appeals

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 to the designee of the appropriate academic college. Review and final ruling for unresolved grade appeal cases resides in the office of the College Dean, who will communicate the final decision to the Office of the Registrar. 

Academic Advising is notified of final grade appeal rulings at the conclusion of the process, who will advise the student as to next steps.

Late grade change requests are only considered for up to one year after the conclusion of the class in question, via petition with supporting documentation. Military exception requests with cause, such as active duty deployment, may be reviewed via petition with supporting documentation.  Students must be in active status with ERAU to have cases considered. Students who have graduated, enrolled in other institutions, been suspended or dismissed, or otherwise broken their continuing student status, are not eligible for late grade change consideration.
