A Petition for General Appeal may only be submitted for processes or deadlines governed by the Office of the University Registrar; e.g., registration and enrollment status deadlines, fee refunds for Cancellation/Withdrawal, PELP, etc. 

Readmission and admission decisions are not goverened by the Office of the University Registrar.  Any student who has missed the Readmission deadline will need to contact their college advisor directly rather than completing a General Appeal form.  Additionally, those wishing to submit an appeal regarding their  admission decision must appeal to the Late Application Appeals Review Committee directly. 

When reviewing appeals, the General Appeal Committee looks at the student’s entire record and any documentation that has been provided as support regarding why the student has missed a particular deadline. As such, there is the expectation that when submitting an appeal the student has a substantive and supported reason for the appeal; e.g., medical or family emergency, administrative error, or other extenuating circumstance. Appeals submitted without appropriate merit or supporting documentation will be denied.
