- Schedule a meeting with your academic advisor in order to discuss your appeal.
Be prepared to talk about what happened last semester and what you plan to do differently in the future to help guarantee your academic success.
- Complete the SAP Agreement + Discussion sheet with your academic advisor.
The SAP A+D sheet will serve as a guide if your appeal for readmission is approved. Through this discussion, you will learn what you need to do in your first semester back in order to regain academic compliance. You will calculate how many credits you should earn in order to improve your cumulative completion rate, if applicable, and what grades you need in order to boost your cumulative GPA to 2.0 or higher.
- Write your SAP appeal letter so that the review committee can learn more about your circumstances.
Describe why you were not able to maintain academic compliance and explain what you will do in the future in order to improve your academic success (such as taking advantage of tutoring, meeting with your academic advisor, repeating classes for academic forgiveness, staying in communication with your professors, working on time/attention management strategies, and/or requesting accommodations, if applicable).
- Submit your completed SAP/dismissal appeal to your academic advisor (email submission is common).
A complete appeal consists of four parts: a SAP appeal form (provided by your advisor), your SAP Agreement + Discussion sheet, your appeal letter, and any relevant supporting documentation (if you have questions about what documentation you can provide, please speak with your advisor).
