- Military orders
- Official letters or other supporting documents on office letterhead, including the title and phone number of the professional writer of the letter. The letter needs to clearly state the reason why you were not able to successfully complete your courses.

- Personal hardships or failure to read College published documents generally do not present justifiable reasons to support an appeal.
- Appeals are approved on a case-by-case basis.
- An appeal for an issue that is more than two years old may not be appealable.
- It is the student's responsibility to demonstrate an unanticipated or unavoidable event, which was beyond the student's control, resulting in the student's inability to complete the quarter or withdraw from courses.
- Appeals for the current quarter will not be considered until the course(s) involved are dropped.
- Appeal decisions will be made solely on supporting documentation provided.
- Final decision of the appeal will be sent to the student through the USPS. It is the student's responsibility to keep all contact information current in the College system.
