Appeal Means requests submitted by the student for the purpose of reviewing academic or disciplinary decisions issued against him/her.
Faculty members shall articulate and communicate course requirements and standards of performance to students at the beginning of each course and apply equal and uniform performance evaluation and grading criteria to all learners. The University provides students an opportunity to appeal decisions affecting their academic standing. Avenues of appeal are as follows:
A student who wishes to appeal on ongoing assessment’s grade in a course should first seek a resolution of the issue informally with the Faculty members. If an informal resolution cannot be reached, the student may appeal the grade formally, beginning with the Faculty members and, if necessary, escalade, at the request of the student or of the Faculty members, through the levels of appeal (faculty members, Department head (where applicable), Dean of College, and the Vice President as a final level of the appeal). At each stage of the appeal, the student must provide a written justification for the appeal and an explanation of the desired resolution; reviewers at any stage of the appeal may request appropriate additional documentation from any party to the appeal.
Any special/conditional admissions will be according to CAA 2019 standards and regulations.
Special admission appeal deals with all appeals relating to student admission. A student may file an appeal for special consideration if unusual or extenuating circumstances prevented him/her from meeting the admission standards, meeting the application deadline and from meeting the requirements of provisional status. Students should provide any documentation of the situation. Forms should be picked up and returned to the Admission office.
The student has the right to appeal the decisions of the Student Discipline Committee decisions.
The student has the right to appeal the decisions of the Student Discipline Committee within fifteen (15) days from the date of notification in writing (in writing or electronically) of the decision issued by the Student Disciplinary Committee. Further details on this can be found in the Academic Misconduct Policy.
