Statement of Understanding

I am currently ineligible for financial aid and responsible for any tuition and fee charges.

A small percentage of appeals are approved.

This appeal will be reviewed by a committee and the decision is final.

I should check the status of this appeal in Banner Self-Service in approximately 4 weeks.

If enrolled, I am responsible for tuition and fees, and purchasing books and supplies by the start of class.

If enrolled, I should attend all regularly scheduled classes for each course.

Free tutoring is available for most courses in the Tutorial Services Department (opens new window).

Academic Advisors are available to help me prepare my class schedule and complete an Educational Degree Plan in the Advising Center (opens new window).

Licensed Professional Counselors are available to help me plan my career and deal with extenuating life circumstances in Support Services (opens new window).

Financial Aid Advisors are available to help me deal with special circumstances related to financial aid and academic success.

Student Development courses such as Techniques of Study, Career Planning, and Stress Prevention are available.

I am encouraged to take the course SDEV 101: First Year Experience where I can learn about Student Success.

Dropping a course after the refund period will negatively impact my completion ratio.

If this appeal is approved, I must pass each class (no W, I, Z, or 0.0 grades) and earn a minimum cumulative 2.0 semester GPA.

This is your opportunity to explain to the Financial Aid Department why you have been academically unsuccessful. Take your time. Please be thorough.
