If you feel you have a situation that can be considered extenuating or believe there is additional information the university should be aware of when processing your admissions file, you have the option to appeal your admissions decision. An appeal to reconsider an admissions decision may or may not change the decision. There are generally two reasons that a decision will be changed: (1) extenuating circumstances that were previously undisclosed, or (2) if the academic record changed significantly from the information on file.
