Tell your instructor as soon as conditions arise that are likely to affect your academic performance. If you plan to file an appeal, be sure to carefully follow the appeal procedures. Help is available.
You must let your instructor or the teaching or program department know as soon as circumstances arise that are likely to affect your academic performance. It is also your responsibility to try to resolve all course related issues with the instructor as soon as they occur and then, if needed, with the Chair/Director of the teaching department/school.
You may file grade and Academic Standing appeals based on one or more specific grounds (reasons):
Consult Senate Policy 134 Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals for detailed definitions of these grounds.
Consult the Significant Dates Table for Appeal deadlines. Timing is key – appeal deadlines are strictly enforced and you must submit the correct documentation and evidence. It is strongly recommended that you seek support and advice when filing an appeal.
See Senate Policy 134 for detailed instructions, definitions, and procedures.
