Academic complaints

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:

  • exclusion
  • 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.
