Administrative Appeals

The Administrative Board of the School of Education has established an Appeals subcommittee to consider administrative appeals from students and applicants with a variety of concerns or requests. The Appeals subcommittee is a standing committee comprised of School faculty, staff and administration attuned to the needs of students and the policies and procedures of the University.

Examples of appeals may include, but are not limited to:

  • Requests to retroactively withdraw or drop courses
  • Request to drop courses for medical reasons after posted deadlines
  • Grade appeals
  • Appeals for denial of reinstatement into a program
  • Dismissal-from-a-program appeals
  • Denial-of-admissions appeals
  • Praxis I appeals

If you feel you have a case for an administrative appeal, please contact the School of Education Office of Student Affairs at (919) 966-1346. Student appeals are considered on a case-by-case basis with proper documentation. Admission appeals are only considered on the basis of 1) an error in the admissions process or 2) a misinterpretation of data.

Appeals should be formally submitted to:
