Program Dismissal Appeals Process

A student may appeal a program’s dismissal decision using the College’s program dismissal appeals process. Appeals are limited to procedural errors that the student can demonstrate negatively affected the outcome.

Appeal Process

The student initiates the appeal process by submitting a hard copy of a statement of appeal to the Provost (e-mail is not acceptable). The statement must provide evidence that there were procedural errors in the program’s dismissal process that negatively affected the outcome. The statement of appeal will be the only basis for the student’s appeal. The Provost must receive the student’s statement of appeal within 10 days of the date on the department’s written notification of dismissal (time limits will include only business days M-F).

A complete copy of the Program Dismissal Process is available from the Office of Academic Affairs.
