Suspension Appeals Process
Students may submit an Appeal of Suspension to the Suspension Appeals Committee, which includes representation from academic and student affairs, within 10 business days following notification of suspension. Appeals of suspension are not automatically granted. Generally, suspension appeals are only approved when the student is able to sufficiently demonstrate that his/her academic performance suffered as a result of factors outside the student’s control and/or the student has shown significant academic progress since falling below the suspension threshold.
Students who are suspended at the conclusion of Spring or Summer II-III sessions are eligible to submit a suspension appeal once the official email notification has been delivered. Students who have been suspended are strongly encouraged to contact their Academic Advising Center to discuss all options regarding their academic deficiency prior to submitting an appeal (see Advising Center links below). Advising staff are a valuable resource that can assist with achieving academic success.
To submit a suspension appeal, log into your MyRU Portal --> Academics Icon --> Academic Tools Menu --> Online Suspension Appeal Form.
