A student has the right to appeal academic dismissal when such action
has been based solely upon the numerical criteria indicated above, and
when there is strong evidence that the student will do much better work
in the future.
To appeal an academic dismissal, the following materials must be submitted within 10 days of notification by the college:
1. A letter from the student stating the reasons for the appeal. The
letter should be sent to the Scholastic Standing Committee, Rutgers
Business School: Undergraduate- Newark, Rutgers, The State University
of New Jersey, Engelhard Hall, Newark, NJ 07102-1894. The student must
describe any problems that may have interfered with academic
performance in the past and explain why substantial improvement is
expected in the future.
2. Other supportive material that may be relevant to the case. Medical
claims should be submitted for verification to the Student Health
Office, Student Services Building, and then forwarded to the committee.
3. The Scholastic Standing Committee welcomes letters of support from
the student's academic adviser and others who are familiar with his or
her academic performance and personal circumstances.
It is the responsibility of each student to become familiar with the
academic regulations of the college, particularly with regard to
scholastic standing requirements. An error of omission on the part of
the college is not sufficient grounds for readmitting a student on
appeal if satisfactory progress toward the degree has not been made.
