Information for students, faculty and staff regarding COVID-19. (Updated: 27 March 2020)
If you consider your decision about degree or transfer of credits to be incorrect, you can make an appeal to the Higher Education Appeals Board (ÖNH). This should be submitted in writing and sent to Umeå University.
*You can only appeal decisions based on the qualifications you provided when applying. If you are dissatisfied with a rejection of an application and wish to attach more qualifications, you should not appeal the decision you received. Instead, you should submit a new application where you attach all the qualifications on which you want your application to be based.
The appeal must be received by the university within three weeks from the day you received the decision, otherwise your appeal will not be reviewed.
The university will re-evaluate its decision, and if a new decision is being made that will allow your application to be approved, you will receive a written notice. However, if the university withholds its previous decision, your appeal will be forwarded to ÖNH. The university also sends a copy of the decision that you have appealed, the university's motivation and the documents that gave rise to the decision. Once ÖNH has made its decision, they will send the decision to you.
Your appeal must be sent to Umeå University. The address is:
SE-901 87 Umeå
