Appeal Procedure to the Admissions Review Committee
The School of Business recognizes that college work previously undertaken by adults in their earlier years may not reflect current abilities. To allow for a measure of flexibility, the School of Business has formed the Admissions Review Committee to consider petitions from students who do not meet admissions requirements, but believe they have compelling reasons for being granted an exception. Petitions are to be addressed to Graduate and Professional Enrollment.
After reviewing each petition, the Admissions Review Committee will make one of three recommendations:
1. The student will be admitted without further qualification;
2. The student will be admitted on provisional status for the first four courses;*
3. The student will be denied admission.
The decision of the Admissions Review Committee is final.
*This status requires that the student earn a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or better in the first four courses. After this requirement is met, the student is transferred automatically to regular admission status.
