Declare/Change Major or Minor
Permission Number

Students may be unable to register for a class if the prerequisites have not been met and/or if departmental consent is required.  Only if a student has met all the prerequisites and still cannot register for a course during the registration period, the student should then request a Permission Number (PN).

Permission Numbers do not override the enrollment limit for classes. If the class is full by the time you receive a PN, you may select another class (and obtain another PN) or join the waitlist for the class using the PN. Use the Class Number and the Permission Number to add the class. Permission Numbers expire on the last day of registration. PNs can only be used once. Each department closely monitors the distribution of PNs.

Grade Appeal

Grade Appeal Instructions for Business Administration, Criminal Justice Administration, and Public Administration Undergraduate Students

Grounds for Appealing a Grade

A grade appeal is permitted when a student can show clear evidence that a grade was contrary to procedures as specified in the course syllabus, was based on prejudice, was capricious, or was the result of computational or clerical error.  The presumption is that the grades assigned are correct until there is a clear demonstration otherwise.  The burden of proof is heavy, and it rests with the student who is appealing.

Grade Appeal Process

1. You must seek to resolve the matter informally with the instructor.  For you to be able to proceed with a grade appeal, you must have met with the faculty member within the regular semester session of the time you knew or should have known of the problem or dispute, unless there is a prior agreement for extension between you and the Department Chair.

It is best to submit your grade appeal request to the instructor via email.  The email subject should be “Grade Appeal”.  In the body of the email, make sure to include the following:

  1. Your name as it is listed on the class roster
  2. The course number, including section
  3. A detailed description of why you believe you received a grade you did not deserve.

2. If an informal resolution with the instructor is not possible, students are advised to go to the Department Chair for further resolution. Please view the list of Department Chairs below and send them an email with your request.

3. If the matter is not worked out informally within 15 classroom days to the satisfaction of the parties, you or your representative may send the grade appeal form via email to the Associate Dean and copy the College Coordinator. (Email to tshabbir@csudh.edu and CC to cbappstudentservices@csudh.edu)

Include in your typed statement:

  1. Download and complete the GRADE APPEALS FORM
  2. Attach a clear statement of the details of the appeal
  3. What specific action you are requesting of the University; and
  4. Arguments to support your request or supporting documentation

If you are unable to email your request, you may mail it to the address below:

Dr. Tayyeb Shabbir
Associate Dean
College of Business Administration & Public Policy
1000 E. Victoria Street, II 4200
Carson, CA 90747

4. Upon review of the grade appeal, Associate Dean Shabbir will convene with the faculty member and Department Chair and collect their statements. If after 15 classroom days has passed and a resolution is not satisfactory to all parties, the appeal will be forwarded to Student Grade Appeals Board Chair.
