Admissions Appeal Process

Every appeal request is reviewed on a case by case basis. Please submit a complete appeal packet as your appeal will only be reviewed one time. All decisions are final and cannot be appealed.

If you feel that you have information that will impact your admission decision, please follow the detailed instructions for submitting an appeal packet:

  1. Fill out the proper admissions appeal form. (See below.)
  2. Your appeal packet must include a letter or personal statement clearly outlining your reasons for appealing the initial decision. If you are lacking requirements, it must also include a detailed plan for completing the missing requirement(s). The information you present should be new and compelling.
  3. If appropriate, include documents that will support your appeal. Supporting documents can include: proof of enrollment, recommendation letters, disability documents, etc. If you have disability documents, please reference them in your appeal packet and send them directly to Disability Services.
  4. Please note that every document submitted is reviewed. Make sure you include all documents that are pertinent to your appeal in your appeal packet. Documents not submitted with the appeal packet will not be considered and cannot be submitted after a decision has been made.
