The appeals committee meets around once a week to process all of the Cancellation Requests we have recieved. There may be cases where the office might need additional information to make a decision regarding your individual case, to which we would highly encourage you to provide it. Students will also be given the opportunity to address the appeals committee directly, if they so choose.
