Suspension or Administrative Withdrawal Appeal Information

Students who have been academically suspended or administratively withdrawn from the College may appeal to the Academic Standing and Integrity Committee. Appeals should include the Appeal Form and should adhere strictly to the guidelines for writing an appeal letter. Documentation of mitigating circumstances and all transfer credits must be included with the appeal.

The Academic Standing and Integrity Committee meets prior to the start of the each term to hear appeals for the new semester start. For the remaining months of fall and spring semesters, the Committee will meet during the last week of each month, with a final semester meeting after final exams. Appeals need to be submitted by the last Sunday of the month to be heard by the Committee the following week. Appeals received after the last Sunday of the month will be heard at the following month's meeting.

The Committee will hear one appeal per student per semester. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss their interest in returning to the College with an advisor prior to submitting an appeal. All decisions of the Academic Standing and Integrity Committee are final.
