How to appeal against a decision that concerns you
If you believe a decision is wrong, you can appeal against it.
The appeal must be done in writing and be addressed to the Higher Education Appeals Board. It should, however, be sent to Registrator SLU, Box 7070, 750 07 Uppsala. It should not be sent directly to the Higher Education Appeals Board.
You must ensure that SLU receives your appeal no later than three weeks after notification of the decision against which you are appealing.
Contents of the appeal
In your appeal, state the decision you want to appeal against and how you believe it should be changed. Enclose the actual decision document as this will facilitate the handling of your appeal. If you have documents that support your point of view, enclose them as well.
Sign the appeal and also add your name in block letters. Make sure to include your postal address, email address and phone number.
When you have appealed
Provided your appeal reaches SLU before the deadline, the university will investigate whether the decision should be changed. If the decision is changed, you will be notified. Your appeal will then be seen as concerning the new decision. SLU will send the new decision to the Higher Education Appeals Board together with the previous decision to ensure that the board gets an overview of the case.
If SLU does not change the decision, your appeal will be sent to the Higher Education Appeals Board together with the decision, all documents relating to it and a statement of opinion from SLU.
