That seems really wrong. You should ask the registrar's office what the policy is, not the professor who may just not want to deal with it. We probably go to different schools, but I was told by one of my profs that, while disputing grades is generally not entertained, clerical errors (computation, data entry, etc) are the major exception to that rule.
Edit: I have no experience disputing grades (I haven't even gotten any). He was just talking about the topic generally.
