Probationary status may not be appealed, although students may request a review of the limitations imposed by the committee if those limitations appear inappropriate for the individual's circumstances. A request for review may be made at any time during the probationary period and should be made to the undergraduate professional schools' Office of Academic Student Services.
Students dismissed from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy by the Committee on Scholastic Standing may appeal to the Assistant Dean of Academic and Student Services of the school within twenty calendar days after the date of the dismissal notice. Grounds for appeal include technical error, extenuating circumstances, additional information not previously available to the committee, and/or other factors the student considers appropriate to support his or her challenge of the dismissal decision. Students must present their appeal in writing.
Letters of appeal must state the reasons for appeal and, when possible, should be accompanied by appropriate documentation. The letter must be written exclusively by the student, although advice in formulating the appeal may be sought from a faculty advisor or academic counselor. Appeals are reviewed by the Committee on Scholastic Standing. Written notice of the appeal decision is sent to the student at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the next term. The decision of the committee is final.
