Appeal Procedure for (SAP) and Attendance
If a student is determined to not be making satisfactory academic progress or attendance has fallen below the requirement, the student may appeal the determination within ten calendar days. Reasons for which students may appeal a negative progress determination include the death of a relative, an injury or illness of the student, or any other allowable special or mitigating circumstance.
The student must submit a written appeal to the school on the designated form describing why they failed to meet satisfactory academic progress or the attendance standards, along with supporting documentation of the reasons why the determination should be reversed. This information should include what has changed about the student’s situation that will allow them to achieve Satisfactory Academic Progress or improve attendance during the evaluation period. Appeal documents will be reviewed and a decision will be made and reported to the student within 30 calendar days. The appeal and decision documents will be retained in the student file.
Students who fail to meet minimum requirements for attendance or academic progress after the warning period will be placed on suspension. If the student wishes to appeal, they will have that opportunity, If the result of the appeal is in favor of the student will be placed on probation. If the student is on probation for academic reasons, then an academic plan will be put in place to assist the student in achieving satisfactory academic progress while during the probationary period. Additionally, only students who have the ability to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy standards by the end of the evaluation period may be placed on probation.
Students placed on an academic plan must be able to meet the requirements set forth in the academic plan by the end of the next evaluation period. Students who are progressing according to their specific academic plan will be considered making Satisfactory Academic Progress.
The student will be advised in writing of the actions required to attain satisfactory academic progress during the evaluation period. If at the end of the probationary period, the student has still not met either the attendance and/or academic requirements required for satisfactory academic progress or by the academic plan, he/she will be determined as not making satisfactory academic progress and, he/she will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination as well as ineligibility of Financial Aid Funds.
