If you can provide evidence that you should not have been excluded, you may lodge an Appeal against Exclusion with RMIT Connect or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be successful, an appeal needs to make out at least one of the following grounds:
- There is evidence that the decision was made on the basis of personal bias or ill will;
- There was a breach of a relevant rule or University policy in the handling of the exclusion process, which had a significant impact on the decision to exclude you;
- There is evidence that the penalty of exclusion is unreasonable, excessive or inappropriate;
- There is significant new, relevant evidence applicable to the period/s of unacceptable academic performance that was not available at the time you were required to ‘show cause’ why you should not be excluded.
Lodgement of appeals
Appeals to the University Appeals Committee must be made on the ‘Appeal against exclusion – University Appeals Committee’ application. The completed form must be lodged with RMIT Connect or via email to email@example.com within 20 working days from the date of the exclusion notification from the Registrar.
