An appeal should not be entered into lightly. Decisions affecting student status in the university are made in accordance with the principles and regulations established by the Faculty as being in the best interests of the students.
If extenuating circumstances contributed to the student's unsatisfactory academic performance, s/he may appeal the suspension decision. However, before instituting the appeal, the student must meet with a member of the Dean of Student Services office. The student should contact the office within ten (10) business days of receiving notice of the decision being appealed. The Committee will take no action unless the student has met with a member of the of Students Services Office and the letter of appeal has been received by the stipulated deadline.
The decisions of the Committee on Student Appeals are final and irrevocable. There are no additional appeals considered by the university. The student will be notified by mail.
