Can I appeal the decision to place me on a Supportive Leave? 

Yes. You may request that the Provost review the decision of the Vice-Provost, Students to place you on a Leave by making a request in writing, within 10 business days of receiving the letter initiating the Leave. If needed, you may request an extension on the time limit to request a review by Provost. The Provost will consider your request for an extension and may extend the time limit, if appropriate. 

As part of their review, the Provost will consider any written submissions, as well as any new or additional information that you may wish to submit. They may also consult with the SST and your Student Case Manager, or anyone else whom the Provost believes may have pertinent information. 

The Provost must review and respond to the request within 10 business days of receipt of your request.  They will provide you with a decision in writing with reasons. 

The Provost may decide to vary or confirm the Vice-Provost, Students’ decision to place you on a Supportive Leave or may refer the matter back to the Vice-Provost, Students for further consideration with whatever guidance the Provost deems appropriate. 

While a matter is under review by the Provost, the terms and conditions of the Leave as determined by the Vice-Provost, Students will continue to apply. 

At any time during this review process, you may explore the possibility of a Voluntary Leave of Absence.  If you and the Vice-Provost, Students both agree on a Voluntary Leave of Absence the review by the Provost will be discontinued. 

Please refer to Section V.A. of the Supportive Leaves Policy for additional information about the review by the Provost.
