Dear {Mr./Ms. Teachername},

My name is {Name} and I am a student in your {Course Name} class. I am writing to appeal my grade in the course on account of extenuating circumstances. I was given a {grade} and I believe I deserve a {grade}.

As you will see from your records, I attended every class, contributed to group conversation at least once every session, and visited office hours no fewer than four times over the course of the term. I read the material, studied often, and completed all the coursework. However, {the final tested material not covered by the class, the test was weighted against met, I had a family emergency, I was unable to take the final, etc.}.

I feel that my grade is not an accurate reflection of my effort and studies over the course of the term. I would like to request {to retake the final, that my extra credit be considered, etc.}.

I would like to schedule a meeting with you to discuss this at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Thank you,

{Sender Name}
