Any rule, regulation, or procedure can be appealed. Decisions are based on evidence that the student was treated unjustly or was not afforded the same opportunities as other students. It is not enough to simply claim "nobody told me". You must have quantitative proof that your were misadvised or misinformed by someone on SPSU's staff, or that you were not treated as other students were treated. Your version of the series of events that led to this situation must be clearly articulated and credible. Your evidence does not have to be prima facie, but it must provide enough reasonable doubt that you were afforded proper guidance to make a policy exception for your case.
