Provost Appeal

Provost Appeal

If you are unsuccessful with your appeal through the Student Appeals Committee, there is one additional option that may be available to you. A Provost appeal is a final attempt to appeal something within the University. While available, many Provost appeals are not successful as the standards for each respective appeal are the same as the standards for the original appeal. For Example, if an appeal failed because of a lack of documentation, it is not likely that it would be approved as a Provost appeal with the same documentation.

If you elect to undergo a Provost appeal, the appeal, with all supporting documentation, must be filed within two (2) weeks of the receipt of the original decision (within 3 weeks for a SAP Suspension Appeal). After a provost appeal is filed, you will be notified of the final decision no later than three (3) weeks after submission.

There are several other situations where a Provost appeal would be appropriate:
- When a student is needing to retake a course for the 3rd (or more) time (4th attempt)
- When a student wants to Specialize in something that is not available to their program
- When a student wants to substitute a Major course and it was not approved by the Program Coordinator

If you have any additional questions about Provost Appeals, please reach out to your student advisor.
