Students who have been dismissed from their major for academic or non-academic reasons will receive a notification letter from their department. Students who are eligible to appeal for reinstatement, must submit a written appeal to the appropriate Departmental Professional Review Committee for re-evaluation of their status. This appeal must be received no later than the date specified in the letter and should explain those factors which led to unsatisfactory academic performance and identify the student’s plan to address these factors in order to attain academic success.
The Department Professional Review Committee will review the student’s appeal and vote to grant the appeal with probation, grant the appeal without probation or deny the appeal. If a student is placed on probation, specific terms of probation will be explained in a letter to the student. If the appeal is denied, the student must transfer to another major.
