Students have the right to appeal the University’s admission 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. Information about the appeal process.
