Transfer Appeal Process

  1. Meet with the Transfer Coordinator to provide clarification of the transfer. The clarification process involves faculty input and evaluation of the course description. The Transfer Coordinator may require the student to produce a copy of course syllabi, and may do additional research on the course in question. The Transfer Coordinator may or may not transfer additional classes after this meeting. If the student is not satisfied with the end result of this meeting, they may proceed to the next step.
  2. A written appeal submitted to the Dean of Students regarding the result of the transfer. The Dean o/f Students will examine what courses have been completed and determine if any further action is necessary.
