Types of appeals:
For Fall 2014 Semester Appeals, students must submit all necessary paperwork by July 11, 2014. Students will be notified of the Appeal Committee decision by July 25, 2014.
If you failed to meet the July 11, 2014 deadline for a fall appeal, the final chance to submit your paperwork is August 1, 2014, in order to be eligible for financial aid. Students will be notified of the Appeal Committee decision by August 12, 2014.
Students who fail to meet the standards of SAP have the option to submit an appeal if being placed on probation is a result of extenuating circumstances. Appeals are reviewed by the Financial Aid Appeal Committee. The outcome of an appeal is final. The committee will automatically deny any appeal that does not have any supporting documentation. If there were not extenuating circumstances that resulted in your lack of academic progress, you are not eligible to submit an appeal.
Examples of possible extenuating circumstances are:
In addition to explaining your extenuating circumstances, you must submit the following items to support your appeal:

You must submit a written statement explaining how extenuating circumstances caused you to fail satisfactory academic progress and include documentation supporting your explanation.
