Academic Appeal Process
The appeal process starts in your College office. If you are appealing for a previous semester, the Retro Appeals Committee has to vote on the appeal and the Committee meets once a month. The limit for a retro appeal is 1 year. Any appeals filed for the current semester will be resolved through your College office.
The University of New Orleans strictly adheres to its published policies, procedures, and deadlines. The University of New Orleans recognizes that serious, extenuating circumstances may prevent a student from adhering to the established policies, procedures, and deadlines of the University. Forgetfulness and ignorance are not acceptable considerations. The burden of proof in documenting these circumstances falls upon the student making the appeal. Students should understand that a result of the appeal could affect their Financial Aid and for clarification, students should seek guidance from the Office of Financial Aid before submitting an appeal.
In addition to providing supporting documentation from external entities such as doctors, attorneys, psychiatrists, social workers, etc., students might also be directed to their College, instructors, and advisors for additional information regarding their last date of attendance, advising history, general attendance, or other pertinent administrative or academic information.
FILING AN APPEAL DOES NOT GUARANTEE APPROVAL. DO NOT STOP ATTENDING CLASSES UNTIL YOU ARE NOTIFIED OF THE OUTCOME OF THE APPEAL.
