Appealing Academic Suspension

Students who fail to meet satisfactory academic progress standards during their warning period by not earning a term GPA of at least a 2.5 and a term completion rate of 100% will be suspended for at least two major terms (fall and spring). All students placed on suspension must appeal to be reinstated.

Appealing due to catastrophic extenuating circumstances
Students who believe they failed to achieve satisfactory academic progress due to catastrophic extenuating circumstances may file an appeal prior to taking the required two major terms off. However, students must be able to provide documentation supporting their claim of catastrophic extenuating circumstances interfering with their ability to be successful in school.

Appealing for reinstatement after serving the required two terms
Students who have served their suspension period must appeal for reinstatement by writing a letter stating the changes that have occurred to allow them to be successful in school along with submitting the required suspension appeal paperwork.
