A Step 3 appeal must set out, with supporting evidence, the reasons why you disagree with the outcome of your Step 2 Formal Grievance or the way in which this outcome was handled. This must be submitted within 10 business days of being notified of that decision.
It is recommended that you review the Student Review and Appeals – Procedures.
Please make note of section 8.2: The appeal must contain the grounds for the appeal and supporting evidence. Grounds for appeal include:
- Relevant factors that were not taken into account;
- New relevant information; and/or
- Procedural errors.
Please note, it will not be sufficient to assert circumstances, performance, or changes to circumstance without some evidence to substantiate or support your claims.
