  • Special consideration requests
  • Grade disputes
  • Appeal processes, submissions and representation
  • lodging a grievance or complaint
  • Student misconduct (academic and non-academic)
  • University rules and regulations

In addition to this, the Student Advocacy Service may also provide assistance, advice or referral for a broad range of issues that affect a student's ability to maintain their studies at Southern Cross University. This may include;

  • Financial / Centrelink problems
  • Residential tenancy advice and referral
  • Discrimination and harrassment
  • workplace disputes

The Student Advocacy Service is an independent service that works solely for the best interests of the student and is disassociated from the University decision-makers in respect of academic and procedural rules and regulations and other staff who administer the University's academic and procedural rules and regulations. The Student Advocacy Service ensures that students are fairly represented by providing relevant information, referral and advice as well as acting as an advocate, liaison or support person.

The Student Advocacy Service is a free and confidential service available to all enrolled students.
