Academic Appeals are one of the final University procedures that you can apply to if you have had difficulties completing an assessment or believe there were errors in the process. Appeals can be submitted after an Academic Integrity process, if a mitigating circumstances application is rejected, or after an awards board has met and you have received your official result.
