Academic Suspension Appeal Instructions

Students who have been placed on academic suspension and wish to appeal for reinstatement should follow the instructions below. Please read carefully.

 

1. Download the Academic Suspension Appeal form. Fill out Section I of the form (preferably typed) and prepare a typed letter that responds to the questions in Section II. This letter should request reinstatement and explain the circumstances that led to your suspension. Attach documentation to support or substantiate any claims you make in your letter.

2. Submit the form, letter, and supporting documentation to the Associate/Assistant Dean of your college by the "Due to Dean's Office" deadline (see below). 

Wall College of Business: Dr. Monica Fine
Spadoni College of Education & Social Sciences: Dr. Clayton Whitesides
CMC College of Health and Human Performance: Dr. Amanda Siegrist
Edwards College of Humanities & Fine Arts: Professor Joe Oestreich
Gupta College of Science: Dr. Prashant Sansgiry
HTC Honors College & Center for Interdisciplinary Studies: Dr. Megan McIlreavy

    3. The Associate/Assistant Dean will forward the student’s appeal to the Office of the Provost for review by the Academic Suspension Appeals Committee. This committee meets on the dates below.  Your suspension appeal must be submitted to your Associate/Assistant Dean by the "Due to Dean's Office" deadline below at which you want your appeal considered.  Please note that for your appeal to be considered at the meeting, all required materials must be due on or before the Due to Dean's Office date.

    4. A student in consultation with their Associate Dean may consider addressing the Suspension Appeals Committee in person. If a student would like to address this committee, they must first meet with their Associate Dean to discuss the benefits of this option on or before the date that their suspension appeal is due to the Dean's Office. The Associate Dean will then forward a recommendation to the Office of the Provost. The student must present substantial information that is not included in their suspension appeal to be considered for this option. Note, such timeslots are limited, and as such all appointments will be arranged on a first-come, first-served basis depending on the timeslots available. 

    5. Once an appeal has been reviewed by the Academic Suspension Appeal Committee, the student may not re-appeal for that semester unless new and compelling evidence is presented. Under no circumstances will an appeal be considered after the beginning of the semester.
