Select THE GROUNDS FOR APPEAL in the appropriate section below See Section 2.5 of the Student Accessibility Appeal
Procedure for details
IF YOU ARE A STUDENT, SELECT GROUNDS FROM THE LIST BELOW:
Failure of judgment: they believe the decision made by the Director of SAS was incorrect in his/her judgement regarding the need for,
application of, or implementation of an Accommodation.
Failure of process: they believe the decision made by the Director of SAS was incorrect due to a failure on his/her part or the part of
SAS to dutifully perform the process of determining eligibility, or determining a reasonable Accommodation.
Failure of information: they believe the determination made by the Director of SAS was incorrect due to a lack of information or
documentation. Generally speaking, the failure of information is informally handled by the student providing updated or requested
documentation.
IF YOU ARE AN ACADEMIC STAFF MEMBER, SELECT GROUNDS NOTED BELOW:
Compromising Academic Standards: they believe that the decision made by the Director of SAS would undermine Bona Fide
Academic Requirements or any essential skills document developed for programs that are subject to external accreditation. The onus is
on the Academic Staff Member to establish how the standards or essential skills would be compromised by providing the
Accommodation. If a Bona Fide Academic Requirements or an essential skills document has not been developed, no appeals shall be
available to Academic Staff Members.

A letter to the Chair clearly explaining the grounds for the appeal
A copy of the letter of reconsideration from the Director of SAS
