A student who has been blocked from continued enrollment, or has been dismissed from the university for scholastic deficiency, may file an appeal with their Academic Dean if they feel their academic performance was affected by extenuating circumstances beyond their control.
Students with extenuating circumstances are eligible to submit an appeal to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of their college. If you received a letter and email from the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies informing you of your academic suspension, you will receive a link to our appeal web form sent to your TAMU email address. This emailed link will be sent after 3:00 PM on Tuesday, December 15.
This web form will allow you to submit your appeal and any supporting documentation you have for your request. Full instructions on what is required will be included with the web form. Please make sure to check your Inbox and any spam/junk folders to ensure that you received this form.
Appeals are due by 11:59 PM, Sunday, January 3, 2021. NO APPEALS WILL BE CONSIDERED PAST THIS DEADLINE. Appeal decisions will be emailed to your official TAMU email address no later than Friday, January 8, 2021. Decisions will not be given by telephone.
Appeals to the Associate Dean of Academic Operations must be completed in its entirety. Meetings with the dean, or other members of the dean’s office will not be held until after the appeal process has been completed and notifications of decisions have been sent. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Essler, Director of Academic Advising at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Please note that the university, and our offices, will be closed for the winter holiday starting at 12:00 PM (noon), Tuesday, December 22 – Friday, January 1, 2021. Return communication from our office will be unavailable during that time.**
