Academic Dismissal Appeals
Students dismissed from their degree program may petition their Dean's
Office to reverse the decision by filing a formal appeal. All appeals
must be presented in writing, with supporting documentation, within two
weeks of receipt of notice of academic dismissal. Students can expect
to hear the results of an appeal within two to four weeks of its
submission. The decision of the Dean's Office is final.
Appeals must contain the following information:
- An explanation of poor performance and/or failure to complete required coursework.
- A description of plans to improve academic performance and/or to complete outstanding work.
- Any other relevant information pertaining to your academic history or potential.
dismissed based on fall term grades must be notified before spring
semester classes begin. If the dismissal status is determined after
classes begin, the student will be allowed to attend classes and be
placed on probation for the spring term.
