appeal form (230 KB)
The University Appeals Committee considers written submissions from students who are appealing a decision by a Faculty Academic Progress and Discipline Committee or School Academic Progress Committee relating to an exclusion from their course or a restriction on enrolment, on the following grounds only:
You need to complete the appeal application form which was attached to your Faculty/School show cause outcome letter. Clearly address one or more of the above grounds for appeal and provide a written submission together with evidence to support your claims for each of the grounds you choose.
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.
