Academic Appeal Guidelines

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and dismissal appeals are normally granted under circumstances which are beyond the student's control, such as illness, injury, family emergency, financial difficulties, loss of transportation or housing, or loss of employment. Requests for a third or subsequent enrollment in courses will be considered only after the student has clearly identified the cause for the previous difficulty in completing the course.

Completing the Appeal Documentation - If you wish to be considered for reinstatement or are requesting to take a course for a third time, you must complete all required sections (A, B, C, D, and E) on the Academic Dismissal Appeal Form. Your appeal will only be considered if all required areas on the form are completed and the requested documentation is attached. This form should be returned to the Academics Office and will be reviewed by the Academic Appeals Committee.

Current students must submit their appeal by the specified date on their dismissal letter. Resuming students or re-admit students must submit their appeal no later than the start of classes for the session in which the student wants to return to school.        

Please allow at least two full business days for a decision. A decision letter will be mailed to the address you indicate on the appeal form. Any student whose appeal is accepted MUST REGISTER within the normal calendar guidelines in order to start classes in the current session.
