Lodging Your Appeal

Please refer to the below steps in preparation for lodging your appeal. Once your appeal is lodged, a preliminary assessment of the merits of your appeal will be conducted and subsequently, a pre-hearing review may be undertaken.

Read the appeal submission guide

Before submitting your appeal application form, please read the appeal submission guide to ensure your application is complete.

Lodge your application

To lodge your appeal, you must complete the student appeal application form.

Assessment of application

If your appeal application is assessed as having merit by Student Affairs it will be sent to the respondent (the Head of School or Executive Dean).

Pre-hearing review

The respondent may request that the matter be dealt with by a pre-hearing review or a hearing of the Student Grievance and Appeals Committee.

Alternatively, Student Affairs may attempt to negotiate a settlement agreement between you and the respondent to achieve a satisfactory outcome for both parties.

Complaint to external review agency

If you are not happy with the outcome of your appeal, you are able to make a complaint to an external review agency. You are able to do this at any stage of the process.

A number of external agencies may be able to assist, depending on your type of grievance.
