You must complete and submit an Application for Reconsideration, Review or Appeal to the College with the prescribed fee within 28 days of the date that you were notified of the Decision, Reconsideration Decision or Review Decision.

4. What if I do not submit my application within the 28 day time limit?
A completed application with the prescribed fee must be received by the College within 28 days of the date that you were notified of the Decision. If you do not have all of the supporting documentation available at the time of application, you will have an opportunity to submit this prior to consideration of your application. You will be advised by College staff what date the supporting documentation must be submitted by. This will be dependent on the date the meeting will be held to review your application.
If you do not submit the application form within the prescribed 28 day time limit, your application will not be considered. In very rare circumstances, exceptions may be made to this. You will need to set out your circumstances and provide supporting documentation, e.g. medical certificates.
5. Who will make the decision regarding my application?
A Reconsideration of a Decision is conducted by the same College Body which made the Decision.
A Review of a Decision is conducted by the College Body that oversees the College Body that made the Decision or the Reconsideration Decision.
