Appeal of an Academic Decision

A student may choose to appeal a decision which has been made regarding a formal request by an initial designee or hearing body to their online or campus program administrator or their designee. Appeals must be submitted in writing and must state a basis for the appeal. Basis for an appeal include:

  • There is new evidence that was unavailable at the time of the original decision that would affect the outcome of the original decision
  • There were procedural irregularities in the process that affected the outcome
  • The original decision was not reasonable based on the evidence compiled

A copy of the program administrator’s or designee’s written decision on the appeal shall be sent to the student in a timely manner. The decision of the program administrator or designee on the appeal is final.
