How to appeal a decision made by SAS
The procedures document relating to Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities, which has been approved by the University of Guelph Senate, identifies several routes for appeal depending on the nature of the decision.
Decisions made by SAS Advisors may be appealed to the Manager of Student Accessibility Services. This relates specifically to "in-course" accommodations such as the need for note taking, arrangements for appropriate seating in a classroom, and supports that are administered by the SAS Exam Centre.
In the event that SAS declines to support a request that also needs instructor approval, then appeals should be directed to the Director of Student Wellness.
If consensus cannot be reached between the student, the course instructor, and SAS, then the decision-making process outlined in section 6 of the procedures documents should be followed.
Decisions by a Dean (or designate) and/or the A.V.P. Graduate Students may be appealed to the Senate Committee on Student Petitions (“Petitions”).
