Appealing an Admission Decision

Students who do not meet the minimal admission requirements, or who have special ability, experience, or other circumstances to demonstrate readiness for college level work may petition for admission by scheduling an appointment with an admissions counselor and submitting an application for appeal form and supporting documentation to the Admissions Office, STE 209. Consideration will be given to the individuals' involvement in responsible non-academic affairs (leadership) while attending high school; status as a first generation college student; English not first language; and attending an underrepresented high school and other extenuating circumstances. Petitions for special admission to the university must receive approval from the Admissions Appeal Committee prior to registration.
