Do you need to file an academic grievance, petition or appeal, but don't know where to begin?
The Centre for Academic Policy (CAPS), provided by WUSA is a confidential resource that provides assistance and support through this process. They have created templates with key outlines and instructions for students navigating issues relating to Policies 70 (Student Petitions and Grievances), 71 (Student Discipline), 72 (Student Appeals) and 33 (Ethical Behaviour).
These downloadable documents give further direction, provide helpful checklists, and aid in guiding your writing professionally.
