Right of Appeal

In all matters concerning Exclusion 1 or 2, the student may appeal by writing to the Registrar and clearly stating the basis for an appeal. The student may appeal after receiving an Exclusion 2 if the student has not received an approved appeal after they received an Exclusion 1. The appeal will be considered by the Academic Standards Committee. A student will be allowed no more than one approved appeal to the Academic Standards Committee and/or to the student’s dean.

Appeal forms are available online at http://em.georgiasouthern.edu/registrar/students/forms/ and must be submitted electronically. Click “Student,” click “Forms for Students,” and scroll down to the readmission appeal form and submit the appeal. The student should submit the appeal as soon as possible but must be received in the Office of the Registrar prior to 4 p.m. three (3) working days before the first day of University classes for the semester the student is seeking readmission to Georgia Southern University. Individuals failing to satisfy the deadline may submit their appeal for the following term.
