  1. Appeals against Decisions

    1.   Appeals against decisions concerning course grade assignment, eligibility of coursework unit transfer, or qualification for candidacy may be addressed to the Dean of Graduate School or his designate who may refer the cases to the Research Postgraduate Studies Committee for consideration.
    2.   In cases concerning the fulfilment of requirements for awarding the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, appeals may be carried to the next sitting authority above the one who made the decision under appeal. That is, an appeal against a Board of Examiners’ decision should be addressed to the Chairman of the Research Postgraduate Studies Committee; an appeal against a decision of the Research Postgraduate Studies Committee should be addressed to the Chairman of Research Committee; and an appeal against a decision of the Research Committee should be addressed to the Chairman of Senate.
    3.   Under normal circumstances, only one appeal is permitted. Under exceptional circumstances, such as information not being made available to the Research Postgraduate Studies Committee when it ruled on an appeal against a Board of Examiners’ decision, a second appeal may be permitted. Within the normal academic processes and structures, appeals cannot be made against Senate rulings.
