Academic Appeals Process

Academic Appeal Forms

Academic appeal forms can be downloaded in PDF format or Microsoft Word, or picked up in the Office of the Associate Dean, room 8-265 of the Vertical Campus. Please carefully read the instructions for each type of request.

The Weissman Committee on Academic Standing is based in the Office of the Associate Dean.

These are some of the appeals handled by the committee:

  • Retroactive withdrawal from a class or total resignation (after the semester is over)
  • Permission to drop after the deadline (within the semester)
  • Request for an extension to resolve an INC grade
  • Request for reinstatement if dismissed
  • 3-Time Repeat of a Course
  • Curricular adjustments or waivers of academic rule

All requests should be documented with supporting evidence: medical notes, military papers, etc. The filing of an appeal does not guarantee a favorable decision; the committee weighs all the information presented by the student and arrives at a conclusion based upon the application of College rules and the appropriateness of the request.

The student is informed in writing of the committee’s decision. Students do not appear before the committee.
