Admission Appeal Procedures

If applicants are denied admission and wish to appeal the decision, they should review admission requirements with an Enrollment Specialist or the Retention Specialist prior to proceeding with an appeal. Students must initiate the appeal as soon as possible, but no later than two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of application.

Appeal Process

  1. Applicants will submit a written appeal to the Vice President of Student Affairs. The appeal should contain specific information and justification for reversing denial of admission.
  2. The Vice President of Student Affairs, or designee, will request written responses to the appeal from the Academic Dean and/or the Office of Admissions.
  3. The appeal, along with the responses, will be routed to an ad hoc committee for review and recommendations for resolution. The ad hoc committee will be comprised of the Vice President of Academic Affairs and designee and the Vice President of Student Affairs and designee. If the committee determines that the information presented is not sufficient to render a decision, it may request that the applicants and/or a College representative be available to respond to questions.
  4. The Vice President of Student Affairs will notify the applicants, the Academic Dean of the desired program, and the Office of Admissions of the committee’s decision.
