Filing an Appeal
Steps for filing an Appeal
All students who wish to file an appeal must fill out the Appeal Form and have a letter from their advisor. The letter from the advisor must state that the courses you are registered for are required for your degree. If this is your last semester the letter must also state that these are the only courses needed to complete your degree requirements. The Appeal Form is located at the bottom of this page or at the front counter of the Registrar's Office.
Students must fill out the entire Appeal Form and return the form to Emily Sheppard in the Registrar's Office located in the Administration Building in Room 135 or fax to the Registrar's Office at 254-968-9389.
Students may attach as much supporting documentation as they feel would aid the Appeal Board in making an educated decision.
The Appeal Form and the advisor's letter must be returned to Sharon Johnson no later than 5 business days prior to the next Appeal Board meeting in order to be heard at the next meeting. Failure to file an appeal at least 5 days prior to the last Appeal Board meeting will forfeit your opportunity to file an appeal for the current semester.
Students must submit all tuition payments on time including the additional fees, regardless of having an appointment with the committee, or they will be dropped for non-payment. If the Appeal Board waives the additional charges, this portion of your tuition would then be refunded to you. For any questions regarding how the additional charges affect your financial aid you must contact the Financial Aid Office at 254-968-9070.
For any questions regarding the Appeal Form or the Appeal process, please contact Emily Sheppard by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 254-968-1830.
