Schedule for 2016-17 Academic Suspension Appeals

Academic suspensions may be appealed using the University Academic Appeals Petition posted above. Suspension appeals are for addressing unusual and extenuating circumstances that have prevented students from raising their GPA to the required level. Students who wish to submit a suspension appeal must submit specific documents in support of the appeal to CAUS Academic Affairs located in the Dean’s office (Cowgill 202) according to the following deadlines:

Fall 2016 appeal documents must be received by:

  • 12:00 noon Thursday, January 5, 2017 to be heard at the Wednesday, January 11 University Appeals Committee meeting. If necessary, a second committee meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 17. If this meeting is scheduled, appeals documents must be submitted to the CAUS Dean’s office by 5:00 PM Friday, January 13.

Spring 2017 appeal dates are to be announced (typically in May soon after the grade posting deadline).

Deadlines associated with future dates of enrollment will be available once appeal committee meetings are set.
