The Student Appeals Office provides students an opportunity to appeal certain situations (based on documented extenuating circumstances.) The college will accept an appeal of college policies to assist students who have experienced an extraordinary set of circumstances. Extraordinary circumstances are limited to a serious illness/prolonged hospitalization, death of an immediate family member, an extreme unforeseen emergency, or non-voluntary military activation. In order to file an appeal, it is important for a student to follow the Appeals Process very carefully.
