When Can I File an Appeal?

You may file an Academic Appeal with the ADFG Office IF you have already exhausted all divisional avenues.

This means that you may file an Academic Appeal with the ADFG Office if all of the following criteria are met:

1) An appeal has already been filed with your respective Academic Division;


If you are an undergraduate student, majoring in History and English, your Division is the Faculty of
Arts and Science

If you are a graduate level student, regardless of your area of study, your Division is the School of
Graduate Studies

2) A decision has been issued by your Division’s final appeal body; and,

3) Ninety (90) calendar days have not elapsed since the Decision from your Division's final appeal body.

If the 90th calendar day falls on a holiday or weekend, you may file your appeal by 5:00 p.m. the next business day.

For example, the Decision from your Division is dated May 27, 2011. You have 90 calendar days to file your appeal. As the 90th day falls on Saturday, August 27, 2011, your deadline is actually Monday, August 29, 2011 by 5:00 p.m.
