Appealing End-of-Year Decision

These policies apply to Undergraduate Students only. Graduate students should contact the Graduate School for more information.

First Year Impact students who have not been offered continued enrollment beyond the second semester and have documented mitigating circumstances that have impacted their ability to meet the requirements of the Learning Contract may consider appealing the end-of-year decision. Not attending class, failing to drop or withdraw from a class, or failing to seek or accept academic assistance made available are not considered mitigating circumstances.

At the end of each semester, the Center for Academic Performance and Persistence will make the appeal form available for download on this web page. Students should carefully read the appeal form instructions and contact CAPP with any questions about what materials are required to constitute a complete appeal packet. Only complete appeal packets, returned to the Center for Academic Performance and Persistence by the designated deadline, will be reviewed. Late appeal packets will not be considered.  Deadline for the Fall 2019 term is Friday, January 3, 2020 at 11:59pm EST.

A decision regarding a student's appeal will be mailed to their permanent address and/or emailed to their College of Charleston-issued email address. Information related to the status of an appeal will not be provided over the phone.

Returning to the College of Charleston

Former First Year Impact and Provisionally admitted students who were not continued and whose appeals are not approved can apply for conditional readmission as a transfer/readmit student at a future date. Such applications will be considered only after completion of 30 transferable semester hours at another accredited institution with a minimum 2.6 (if SC resident) or minimum 3.0 (if non-SC resident) grade point average.
