University Student Appeals Office

What is an appeal?

An appeal is a request for a decision to be reviewed and changed. During an appeal hearing, the reasons (or grounds) for the appeal, the decision being appealed, and the process used to make that decision, are examined.  At the University, if a student does not follow the appeal process set out in the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy and its procedures, the appeal will be denied.

Role of the University Student Appeals Office

The University Student Appeals Office is a resource for students, faculties and staff regarding student appeals at the University of Calgary.

 The services we provide include:

  • Information about the student appeals process at the University
  • Resource materials for students
  • Training for University decision makers
  • Legal advice to certain University decision makers

Responsibilities and Expectations

Students are responsible for engaging in the appeal process in a respectful manner, being familiar with the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy and Procedures, and seeking support when needed.


Please note that if there is a conflict between the content on the University Student Appeals Office Website and the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy and its procedures, the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy and its procedures prevail.
