Appeal Procedure

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.
