MyCQU - Student Advocacy

Student Advocacy

Student Advocacy is a free and confidential service providing support and assistance to all CQUniversity Australia Students who seek guidance on grievances, appeals and disputes. The Student Advocacy Officer is here to help students understand and navigate associated University policies and processes, and to articulate their issues.

A full list of policies and procedures that relate to CQUniversity students can be found at


The Student Advocacy Officer can provide assistance with understanding and formulating responses to ‘Alleged Academic Misconduct – Invitation to respond’ emails, and review of grade applications.

Student Advocacy can assist with Academic Appeals for:

  • an unsuccessful application for a review of grade
  • an unsuccessful application for a deferred exam
  • a determination of conditional enrolment
  • academic misconduct
  • suspension or expulsion for cheating, plagiarising or attempting to circumvent assessment requirements
  • other academic matters, such as MAP (Monitoring Academic Progress).

The Student Advocacy Officer can also offer support with grievances and lodging formal complaints.
