The Academic Appeals Committee will only consider requests that have been reviewed and signed by an advisor/counselor. Forms are available from the Advising and Counseling Office at any campus and are accepted throughout the academic year. The committee meets once a month and students will receive a written response within a one to two-week period after the committee makes their final decision.
