Appeals and concessions

An appeal is a formal, written request that a regulation be waived for extenuating circumstances. Before launching an appeal, make sure that you understand why there is an appeal procedure. For full university policies, refer to the academic calendar.

Undergraduate appeals and concessions

Academic concession

If your academic courses are affected by illness, accident or family affliction, you may wish to request an academic concession.

Fee reduction appeal

If you believe an administrative error occurred or have extenuating circumstances, you may wish to request a retroactive course drop and fee reduction.

Admission appeal

If you were denied admission or readmission to the University and feel that you have extenuating circumstances or can provide additional information, you may wish to appeal the decision.

Graduate academic appeals

A graduate student may launch an academic appeal within their academic unit. After this recourse has been sought, graduate students may appeal to the Faculty of Graduate Studies on any matter within its jurisdiction. Contact the Graduate Admissions and Records Office.
