When you lodge an appeal you can expect that it will be managed by Student Policy and Integrity Services in the following way:
After you lodge an appeal, you will receive an acknowledgement as soon as possible following receipt.
We will conduct an initial review of your appeal and will contact you if you need to provide more information or documentation.
You will be advised of the outcome of the initial assessment and the next steps in the appeal process.
Your appeal will not be referred to the Student Appeals Committee if it does not meet any of the grounds for appeal as specified in the Student Review and Appeal policy.
You will be advised in writing if your appeal is eligible to proceed to the Student Appeals Committee. The relevant College/University service will be asked to provide a written response to your appeal.
At this time you will be advised of a preliminary date for the appeal hearing.
Student Appeals Committee
You and a representative of the College/University service will be invited to a Student Appeals Committee hearing to answer questions about your appeal. You are allowed to bring a support person (another student, a Flinders staff member or a FUSA representative). Neither you or the University/College service are able to have legal representation at the hearing (refer to the policy for further details).
The decision of the Student Appeals Committee will end the appeal process within the University. Both you and the College/University service will receive a written copy of the decision of the Committee and the reasons for the decision.
The University recognises your right to refer a complaint to a relevant external agency at any time.
