Academic Status Appeal Form
Any student who has been suspended for one calendar year or any student who has been suspended for three calendar years and has completed one year of the suspension period has the right to file an appeal of that status and to request that the Readmissions Committee hear the case. The Readmissions Committee, upon hearing the case, has the authority to permit readmission of an academically suspended student before the expiration of the period of suspension. However, the Readmissions Committee exercises that authority only when the appealing student can present substantial evidence of unusual mitigating or extenuating circumstances which led to the student's academic difficulties or when the appealing student can present substantial evidence of changed circumstances supporting the likelihood of the student's future academic success. An academically suspended student without such evidence should not appeal his or her suspension, since without such evidence, the appeal will be denied. ONLY ELIGIBLE APPEALS WILL BE HEARD. COMPLETING THIS FORM DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY WARRANT A HEARING!

THE READMISSIONS COMMITTEE WILL MEET ON MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE COMMONS. APPEALS WILL BE HEARD ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS
