Academic and Course Grade Appeals

The Academic Appeal Process exists for students to request an exception to an academic policy or procedure at Ozarks Technical Community College. An academic review committee evaluates the student’s request and supporting documentation as well as college records to determine if there is sufficient basis for granting an appeal. This process investigates whether there were extenuating circumstances that prohibited the student from adhering to college requirements, etc.

Please review the policies below to determine if one fits your circumstances. These policies were developed to assist with situations warranting an adjustment.

Please accept our best wishes for future academic success!
