Submitting an appeal, regardless of when the appeal is submitted, does not guarantee that approval of the appeal will occur prior to the term in which the appeal is for starting. Students, who are on financial aid suspension pursuing an appeal, must plan on making alternative payment arrangements with the Office of Student Accounts. DO NOT wait for the results of the review. Though the intent of the committee is to review appeals within 7 to 10 working days of when an appeal is submitted, the volume received may necessitate the process to take longer. It is the student's responsibility to submit the appeal(s) with supporting documentation. Failure to provide the documentation with the appeal will result in the appeal being returned to the students and a delay in the review process.
