Denial Appeals

If you feel there is new, serious, and compelling information that might affect our decision, you may submit an appeal. You have 15 business days from the date you receive your deny letter in the mail to submit a letter of appeal to the Appeal Committee.

The committee must see a demonstrated need to repeal the denial decision based on the new information being submitted. To submit an appeal, download the Admissions Appeal Coversheet (PDF) and complete as directed. You are entitled to one appeal per academic term.
