A student reserves the right to file an appeal of the decision of his/her/their faculty member.

Class Removal Appeal Form

If a faculty member believes a student should be permanently removed from a class due to their disruptive behavior, the student will be invited to a meeting with the faculty member and the respective Department Chair. At this meeting, the student, faculty member and Department Chair will try to unanimously resolve the issue. If a unanimous resolution is not reached, the student will have two (2) business days to appeal his/her/their removal from the class. A written appeal must be submitted using the Class Removal Appeal Form.
