Appeals Process

A student who fails to make satisfactory academic progress may appeal, in writing, the loss of eligibility. Students should provide documentation of circumstances that were clearly beyond their control. Types of documentation may include doctor and hospital reports, legal documents, and written confirmation from a parent or other official sources as deemed appropriate by the Financial Review Committee.

Written appeals and all supporting documentation must be submitted to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Assistance. The Financial Review Committee will review the written appeal, supporting documentation and notify the student in writing of the appeal decision within 14 days from the date received.

To appeal the decision of the Financial Review Committee, the student must submit a written appeal and all supporting documentation to the Provost Office and arrange to meet with the Provost or his/her appointee. The decision of the Provost is final.
