Petitions & Appeals Process

The Academic Regulations for the Faculty of Arts and Science are designed to ensure that academic standards are upheld and that all students are treated fairly and equitably. The academic petition and appeal process is available to reconsider the suitability of sanctions or penalties imposed upon a student in light of information brought forward by the student concerning such extenuating circumstances.The Faculty does, however, understand that there are occasions in which extenuating circumstances, that is circumstances beyond a student's control-adversely, affect a student's performance at Queen's University.

Academic petitions and appeals within Arts and Science provide accommodation for extenuating circumstances or allow for review of academic decisions. The processes governing petitions and appeals are set out in the sections on Academic Regulations and Academic Appeals in the academic calendar. Students are responsible for informing themselves of these processes and the information necessary to submit a complete request.
