Student Senate Appeals

Student Senate Appeals are academic appeals submitted to the Student Appeals Board for consideration. The Board has authority to hear appeals from decisions relating to:

  • Program or degree requirements or deadlines;
  • Final grades;
  • Registration status decisions of the Registrar or Dean (e.g. backdated withdrawals, retroactive registrations;) and
  • Academic integrity findings and outcomes imposed under the Academic Integrity Policy;
  • Accommodation of student activities under Faculty Handbook 3:C.14; and
  • Other academic decisions relating to an individual student.
