What is the academic appeals process?
A student who is academically suspended from the University for the first time will receive a letter of notification regarding the suspsenion. The suspension letter will identify deadline dates for appeals as well as specify when the Academic Appeals Committee will meet to review the transcripts and discuss the appeal letters. Once an appeal letter is submitted by the specified deadline, the student is in the appeals process. After the committee meets to discuss the appeals, they make a recommendation to the Dean of Students as to which students should be reinstated and which students should be denied reinstatement. The Dean considers the committee’s recommendation and makes a final decision. The students are notified in writing of the final decision.
