Students can make a complaint about an academic decision. An academic decision is defined as a decision by the University that affects the academic assessment or progress of a person within his or her award course. These types of complaint are called appeals against academic decisions and include decisions made by a faculty regarding:
- special consideration
- grade for a unit of study or assessable task
- applications for a Discontinue Not Fail (DNF) grade
The process for making an appeal against any of these types of decisions can be found in the section concerning Academic Appeals.
