Applicants who are denied admission into the Graduate Program are allowed to appeal these decisions. Applicants who wish to appeal an admission decision should contact the Chairperson of the Admission, Progression and Graduation Committee. The Chairperson will review the appeals process with the student. This process includes a written notification of the desire to appeal and an appearance at the next scheduled Admission Progression and Graduation Committee meeting. The deadline for submitting a written notice of appeal is the twenty-first calendar day after the start of the fall or spring semester following notification of denial.
If the decision to deny admission is upheld by the Committee, applicants may submit a written appeal to the Dean of the College of Nursing. If applicants are not satisfied with the outcome of the appeal to the College of Nursing Dean, a written appeal may be sent to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs/Provost.
