Following notification of a decision by the Promotions Committee, a student may appeal the decision in writing within three business days to the Dean. The Dean may grant an appeal only if a student is able to demonstrate one of the following:

  1. Bias of one or more Promotions Committee members.
  2. Material information not available to the student or Promotions Committee at the time of its initial decision.
  3. Procedural error by the Promotions Committee.

During the appeal process, the student must continue to attend classes. Failure of the student to meet with the Student Promotions Committee does not constitute a reason for appeal.
