Petitions & Appeals

While CalSWEC and the CSU, Chico Title IV-E Program anticipate that you will be able to complete your program successfully and begin your career in child welfare services, challenges may arise due to personal circumstances or changes in the job market. The Petition and Appeal processes are designed to resolve these challenges. Read the Title IV-E Student Contract carefully. It provides the basic obligations the University program has to you and you have to the program. Because it is an agreement you sign, the Contract is the controlling document in any disagreement arising between you and the program.

If you choose to petition, please contact Melissa Cheatham at mcheatham@csuchico.edu for complete instructions and petition documents.
