If your student ID card is lost or damaged before the expiry date, you will need to pass by the Office of Registrar and request a new student ID card (fees will apply).
The student has the right to ask, within the deadlines set on the Academic Calendar, for his/her course final grade to be re‐examined by submitting an online request or at the Registrar Office. After this period, no recourse, even a justified one, is possible. A student can ask for the re‐examination of two grades, at the most, per semester or summer session. If the request is approved, the student will check the modified grade on his/her Banner account. If the request is rejected, the process fees will be automatically charged to the student’s account. The only acceptable requests for a grade review are in the case where a mistake occurred while adding up the grade or while copying the grade onto Banner.

Deadline to submit a final grade review is 48 hours following the publication of the grade on the Banner System.
