The Co-Curricular Appeals Process
The purpose of an appeal is to provide resolution to any discrepancies between the validator* and student** regarding a student's co-curricular record.
A student can begin the process of an appeal should they believe that:
- There was an error in the process; or
- A decision was made unfairly; or
- Critical information was excluded from the initial validation process.
THE APPEALS PROCESS
The first stage of the co-curricular record appeals process is for the student to arrange a meeting with the validator in order to discuss possible solutions.
If the validator and student do not come to a mutual agreement, the student can choose to schedule a second mediation attempt with the Coordinator, Co-Curricular Programs (Humber College) or Student Life Coordinator (Guelph-Humber) to provide mediation between the validator and the student in order to come to a resolution.
If the student is not satisfied with the resolutions provided from steps one and two, they can set up a meeting with the Director, Student Life (Humber College), or Department Head, Student Services (Guelph-Humber) where an indisputable decision will be made regarding their appeal. Results from the appeal will be provided to all parties in writing.
