Prior to appealing a graded term work or academic assessment reappraisal decision, a student must complete the reappraisal process set out in Sections I.2 (Reappraisal of Graded Term Work) or I.3 (Reappraisal of Academic Assessments (final grades), as appropriate.
Appeals of reappraisals of graded term-work are made to the Faculty offering the course, whose Faculty Appeals Committee is the final level of appeal for graded term-work.
Appeals of reappraisals of academic assessments are made first to the Faculty Appeals Committee of the Faculty offering the course, and then to the University Appeals Committee in accordance with the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy. The University Appeals Committee is the final level of appeal for academic assessments.
Appeals of grades associated with academic misconduct, as outlined in Section K.3 (Student Academic Misconduct) must follow the process set out in the Student Misconduct and Academic Appeals Policy.
Appeals made to a Faculty Appeals Committee must be made within ten business days of the unfavourable reappraisal decision and in accordance with that Faculty Appeals Committee’s procedures available at https://ucalgary.ca/student-appeals/.
