Grievances can be filed by students who believe they have been treated unfairly by a member of the UWaterloo community, or who believe proper university policies and procedures have not been followed.

There are two types of grievances:

  • Notice of Challenge
    Can be filed against a person or group who has been biased against you or treated you unfairly; or against a member of the University community who has not followed University policies or procedures.
  • Grade Reassessment
    Can be filed if you believe your essay, exam, assignment, etc. was unfairly marked and you wish to have it remarked by another faculty member at the University.

Grievances fall under university policy 70.
