There are times when more than one appeal may have to be filed. For example, if you have been placed on Academic Dismissal, you will have to file a CAS appeal and possibly a Title IV appeal.

All appeals require a written statement from the student. It is highly advised to submit any and all supporting documentation. All appeals are reviewed by a committee and require a minimum of 2 weeks before a decision is rendered. You will be notified of the committee’s decision by mail, email or telephone.  All decisions are final.
