  2. Schedule a meeting with your assigned major-specific advisor. Their contact information can be found in your Student Center.
  3. Complete and sign the Plan of Study form following your discussions with an ADR advisor and your major-specific advisor.

Letter Guidelines

Write a letter to the University Academic Appeals Committee (one page, single- or double-spaced, typed) that includes:

  • Date and student ID number
  • What you are requesting (immediate/early reinstatement)
  • Description of any extenuating circumstances and how they affected you and your academics
  • Explanation of how those circumstances have been resolved or are being resolved
  • Statement of your academic goals and plans
  • Signature


Include any documentation that relates to the circumstances you discussed in your letter. While not required, it is highly encouraged to include documentation if you have it. This might include:

  • Proof of doctor’s visits, hospital stays, etc. with dates
  • Obituary or funeral program
  • Police report
  • Letter from doctor, counselor or lawyer on official letter head

If your appeal is approved, at the start of the semester, a Probation Advising Required Hold will appear on your Student Center. This hold will be removed following completion of the ACAD 102 course or three academic coaching sessions.
