Appeals Process

A student, under various circumstances, can file an appeal to the Committee on Academic Standing. There are two primary types of appeals:

The academic related appeals generally deal with dismissal and/or withdrawal after the deadline. The financial related appeals generally pertain to the Financial Aid Title IV Appeal.

The process for completing an appeal is as follows:

1. Go to the Registrar's office to pick up the appropriate appeal form for Academic matters (Financial Aid for financial aid matters). A staff member there may ask you for more information to determine if you qualify.
2. Bring the form to the Counseling Center (S-343) to discuss the circumstances. In most cases the counselor will advise you to secure appropriate documentation verifying your situation.
3. Get the appropriate signatures or documentation and meet with a counselor for a recommendation.
4. Return the completed appeal to the Registrar's office.

Please note that the appeal process is somewhat lengthy and may take time to approve. Information and documentation that verifies your situation can expedite the process.
