Policies and Procedures

Appeal Process: Probation/Suspension

Students may appeal academic probation or suspension if unusual and/or mitigating circumstances have affected academic progress. Examples of such circumstances are: severe illness, an injury that has affected student performance, an illness or injury of a student’s immediate family member, death of a relative, student deployment or activation into military service, or other circumstances that have caused a student not to meet academic progress requirements. All appeals must be in writing and sent to the Vice President and Dean for Graduate & Professional Studies. The appeal should clearly address the circumstances that led to the action. Students must appeal within one (1) month of notification of academic probation or suspension.
