Appeals

You may file an appeal in regards to an opt-in (for yourself and/or your family), opt-out, or fee assessment. The Appeals Committee assesses the validity of appeals on the basis of two criteria: administrative unfairness and/or extenuating personal circumstances. Find the Appeal form in the Forms section of this website.

The GSSĀ Health and Dental Appeals Committee Guidelines are presented in the Forms section of this website.

The GSS encourages you to consult with the Office of the Ombudsperson where you can find support in preparing your appeal. The Ombudsperson is a neutral advocate for fairness at UVIC.
