Academic Performance and Standing - Appeal of Academic Suspension or Dismissal

Appeal of Academic Suspension or Dismissal

A student may appeal a suspension or dismissal due to poor academic performance.  There are only two grounds for appeal:
1)   Miscalculation of the GPA or CGPA
2)   Extenuating circumstances
In the case of miscalculation of the GPA or CGPA, the student must be able to demonstrate that the grade average was incorrectly calculated and should be sufficiently higher as to remove the student from the circumstances that led to the suspension or dismissal.  In the case of extenuating circumstances, the student must be able to demonstrate that he/she encountered unusual circumstances during the previous semester that caused a poor academic performances and he/she is sufficiently capable academically to clearly perform at an academic level in the subsequent semester to meet the requirements for satisfactory academic performance.
The process for appeal of suspension or dismissal requires that the student submit a formal letter of appeal to the Director of Academic Advising requesting a review by the Academic Review Committee stating clearly the reasons for the appeal.  Any supporting information should be attached.  The letter should be sent to Director of Academic Advising via e-mail and must be received no later than ten calendar days after the notification of suspension or dismissal has been sent to the student electronically via their AUN e-mail address.  Notification of the verdict will be sent to the student via e-mail when the Academic Review Committee renders a final decision, within 10-15 business days of the receipt of the appeal. Submission of an appeal does not guarantee a favorable review. All records of appeal will be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar to be included in the student's record.
