Academic and Disciplinary Appeals


In light of the continued uncertainty within the environment due to COVID 19, there are some temporary changes to the appeal process. Policy A01 - Academic and Disciplinary Appeals will still largely apply as written, with the following exceptions for appeals of both academic and disciplinary decisions:

Timing for Appeal Submissions - Normally, when a decision being appealed impacts on immediate continuation in a program, notice in writing must be submitted to the Dean/Director no later than three college working days after the start of the subsequent course(s). This deadline is being temporarily extended to no later than five college working days, to account for possible delays due to online communications.

Decision and hearing process of Formal Appeals – the composition of the Formal Appeals Committee will be temporarily amended. All formal appeals will be heard, via distance methods, by (1) the Registrar, (2) the Vice President Academic, and (3) the Director, Students’ Association. This may be held in an asynchronous method if deemed necessary by the Formal Appeals Committee. These three positions may use delegates when and if necessary.

The Assiniboine Community College Students’ Association provides confidential, unbiased advocacy services to current, former and/or prospective students. If a student requires assistance with interpreting or understanding college policy, you are encouraged to seek the assistance of an Advocate for support. Advocates can be reached at or by phoning 204-725-8700 (extension 6645).
