Academic Suspension (1st Suspension only)
Students on academic probation, not meeting the requirements of that probation, will be suspended for the next regular (16-week) semester. After one semester of suspension, a student must be readmitted in the Office of Records. If upon readmission, academic standards are once again not met, the student will not be allowed to continue until the retention GPA has been raised to institutional standards through coursework completed at another institution. Students wishing to appeal their suspension due to extraordinary circumstances should submit a typed petition along with support documentation to the Registrar.

Emergency Drop/Late Withdrawal
Students may petition to withdraw after the add/drop or withdrawal deadline if an emergency situation exists. An emergency is defined as an extraordinary and unforeseen event (such as an illness requiring hospitalization, work transfer to another state) that occurred after the add/drop or withdrawal deadline and/or prevented the student from withdrawing by the deadline. To be considered for an Emergency Drop/Late Withdrawal the student must submit a typed appeal (forms available in the Office of Records) along with support documentation to the Office of Records. The appeal will be reviewed by a committee and the committee’s decision will be final. The appeal must be filed within 90 days of the end of the semester in question.
