Academic Advocacy Office: Overview

The Academic Advocacy Office aims to serve as a guide to some of the academic policies and procedures that exist at the University of Saskatchewan. Dealing with the formal documents can be a daunting experience for students, so we hope this serves as a more accessible version of some of the more common occurrences and issues that may arise throughout a student’s undergraduate experience. This page will be of particular interest to those in student government that deal with academic issues (whether at the University, College, or Department level or in some other capacity). It should serve as a quick reference point for people in these roles so that they can best help when called upon by students. Also, this page is designed to be a general guide for all students at the University of Saskatchewan, so this means mostly providing general information on University policies that applies across all Colleges, Departments, and Units. However, some College-specific information is provided when necessary and appropriate.

Academic Advocacy Office Statistics May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2013. During this period, there were 101 cases brought forward, which break down as follows:
