Appeal 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.

In the instance a student feels due process was not provided or believes the Financial Appeals Committee did not give appropriate and timely attention to the petition, the student may contact the Office of Financial Assistance to request a meeting to review the petition with the Director of Financial Assistance.
