Appealing End-of-Year Decision

Provisional students who have not been offered continued enrollment beyond the spring semester and have documented mitigating circumstances that have impacted their ability to meet the requirements of the Provisional Program may consider appealing the end-of-year decision. Not attending class, failing to drop or withdraw from a class, or failing to seek or accept academic assistance made available are not considered mitigating circumstances.

At the end of each spring semester, Undergraduate Academic Services will make the appeal form available for download on this web page. Students should carefully read the appeal form instructions and contact Undergraduate Academic Services with any questions about what materials are required to constitute a complete appeal packet. Only complete appeal packets, returned to Undergraduate Academic Services by the designated deadline, will be reviewed. Late appeal packets will not be considered.

A decision regarding a student’s appeal will be mailed to their permanent address and/or emailed to their College of Charleston-issued email address. Information related to the status of an appeal will not be provided over the phone. 

Returning to the College of Charleston

Former provisionally-admitted students who were not continued and whose appeals are not approved can apply for conditional readmission as a transfer/readmit student at a future date.  Such applications will be considered only after completion of 30 transferable semester hours at another accredited institution with a minimum 2.6 (if SC resident) or minimum 3.0 (if non-SC resident) grade point average. For more information, please visit the Office of Admissions.
