The Student Advocates assist Concordia students facing charges under the Academic Code of Conduct and the Code of Rights and Responsibilities. Student Advocates are experienced currently registered students who have a particular interest in fairness and natural justice and have received specific training and acquired unique skills in dealing with relevant issues relating to University rules and regulations. The Student Advocates work closely with the Coordinator on all their cases.
Students can receive assistance with issues related to the Academic Code of Conduct, the Code of Rights and Responsibilities, or the Graduate Academic Appeals Tribunal (GAAT) . The Student Advocates can accompany students to code hearings, appeals, meetings and appear before specific committees in support of their student client. They can assist with student requests, grade re-evaluation applications and appeals and can also help with other administrative processes. The Student Advocate can provide information and referral on university and community resources as well as direct the student to useful websites for sourcing/citation rules.

We want to remind you that in addition to assisting students with Code related issues, our services also include helping you navigate the many routine procedures you may face while at Concordia. If you need assistance in applying for a late DISC or DNE, an Exam Deferral or MED notation we can help. If you need information on what happens now that you are on Failed Standing or how to go about having a grade re-evaluated we can help.
