If a student declares no contest to the facts leading to suspension under Standards of Academic Progress, but simply wishes to request consideration for readmission, the student may submit an appeal for readmission using the online form located on the Registrar page of the College website. During the meeting of the Admissions/Academic Standards Committee, which shall not be considered a “due process” hearing but rather a petition for readmission, the student shall be given an opportunity to present a rationale and/or statement of mitigating circumstances in support of immediate readmission. The decisions of the Admissions/Academic Standards Committee, together with the materials presented by the student, shall be placed in the College’s official records. Additionally, a copy of the written decision shall be provided to the student. Equity, reasonableness, and consistency should be the standards by which such decisions are measured.
