Academic Appeals

Academic Appeals related processes fall under the jurisdiction of the NOSM University Senate.

With the proclamation of NOSM to NOSM University in April of 2022, the University has sought to update this terminology on its website and in its publications. However, it is possible that examples of the old terminology remain, particularly in older or archived official texts. The old and new terms have the same meaning and should be considered equivalent.
For key documents, processes or information or if you have questions regarding Academic Appeals please contact the University Secretary at governance@nosm.ca and in the subject line “Learner Appeals”

If you are a student/learner looking to appeal a matter, as a starting point, ensure you have read the appropriate program Appeal Policy.

Please ensure that you have read the Senate Appeals Policy and forms with particular attention to:

Section 3.2 of the Senate Appeal Policy in which it states ” An appeal to the SAC may only be made: a. after a decision subject to the appellate jurisdiction of the SAC has been made and communicated to the Learner. b. after all procedures at the previous level(s) have been exhausted
