Appeals Workshops

Topics covered include the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards and the process of appealing for reinstatement. The presenter will discuss the appeal process and what a student should include in their appeal to improve their chances of getting their financial aid reinstated. Students who have been academically disqualified from receiving financial aid are encouraged to attend this workshop.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. You must bring a valid, state issued ID and an ink pen.

You do not need to attend this workshop if you previously attended one. Students who are disqualified for having an AA/Bachelors/Masters or for having at least 90 attempted units (and without GPA or non-grade issues) do not need to attend a workshop, but instead will need to submit an Educational Plan with their appeal.
