Admissions Appeal

FAQ about Admissions Appeals

Who can appeal: Any undergraduate student that has been denied admission to the university.

How do I appeal: 
The applicant must submit their appeal in writing via the online form. All supporting documentation must be included in its entirety to be considered. When you sign the online form you are not only agreeing to the terms of the appeal but also you are affirming all information required is attached. INCOMPLETE APPEALS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

When should I appeal: 
You may appeal your admission decision immediately after we have denied you admission to the university and you have been notified of that decision. All applicants will be notified by US mail. Your completed appeal must be received 15 business days before the first day of class.

What should I add to my appeal:

  • Letter of appeal detailing
    • Any new academic or personal information pertaining to your appeal
    • Any extenuating circumstances (e.g. hospitalization, military service, family crisis, hardship)
    • Reason for reconsideration
    • Information that clearly shows the student to be better prepared for success at the University level.
  • Any supporting documentation that substantiates your appeal
  • Letter of Recommendation (Optional)

How long will it take to learn the outcome of my appeal: Your completed appeal will be processed within 10 business days after it has been received. The process may include a face-to-face meeting with a Dean or Dean’s designee.


Important Information:

  • Documentation must show verifiable evidence supporting the justification for the appeal.
  • The appeal process is limited to admission to the university only; it does not guarantee admission to a particular program of study.
  • All students whose appeal is approved will be admitted on probation and will be required to sign a Learning Contract. If the student fails to achieve an institutional GPA of 2.0 or higher at the end of the first semester, the student will be placed on academic suspension for a period of one year and will be ineligible to re-enroll until such time period has lapsed.
  • This is an academic appeal ONLY and approval of an academic appeal does not guarantee that the student will be eligible to receive financial aid. Financial aid appeals are considered separately from academic appeals
