Council Committee on Student Appeals (CCSA)

The Council Committee on Student Appeals ensures that the Council has appointed a committee that will hear and decide upon all appeals by students or others on academic matters in connection with any faculty of the University. With the exception of matters heard by the Council Discipline Committee, all appeals and applications by students regarding faculty decisions (including RTD's) will be heard by the Council Committee on Student Appeals.  

Grounds for appeal to the Council Committee on Student Appeals should be based on one or more of the following:

  • There is additional relevant information which was not considered at the faculty level.
  • There was a problem in procedure at the faculty level.
  • The substance of the case was not considered correctly at the faculty level. For example, relevant rules and regulations were applied incorrectly.
  • Even if relevant rules and regulations were applied correctly the resulting decision is unfair or unreasonable in the circumstances.

The Committee provides a full hearing. If misconduct is substantiated, the Committee has authority to assign a penalty that is the same as, less or more severe than, the original penalty.

  • 4 members of Council (4 alternates)
  • 3 students (3 alternates) including at least one member and one alternate from the GSA
  • Chair of Council Committee on Undergraduate Admissions and Studies (CCUAS)
