appeal form (298 KB)
Appealing a decision to automatically exclude you because you did not meet restrictions placed on your enrolment by the Faculty Academic Progress and Discipline Committee or School Academic Progress Committee, can only be made on the basis that there were exceptional circumstances beyond your control that prevented you from complying with the restriction imposed previously.
Make sure that you submit your completed application by the deadline specified in your show cause outcome letter. You have seven (7) days from the date of your show cause outcome letter to lodge your completed application to the University Appeals Committee. You may wish to use the sample letter attached to your appeal application form to write your submission.
If you need assistance with your appeal, you should seek advice and support from the Deakin University Student Association (DUSA). DUSA are able to assist you to prepare a quality submission, ensure that all relevant documentation is provided to support your case and can guide you on the relevant university policy and processes. Find out how to ‘Get Support’.
You are required to submit the relevant appeal form together with a written submission and evidence that supports your claim.
If the University Appeals Committee accepts your appeal application, and that exceptional circumstances existed, you will be notified of a date, time and place for a hearing.
