Undergraduate Academic Appeal

Academic setbacks are common, and the challenges may relate to how you have approached your academics (i.e. study skills, major choice) or could be rooted outside of academics (i.e. health, financial, family, etc.).

The purpose of Academic Suspension I, Academic Suspension II, or Academic Dismissal is to provide a pause in your enrollment at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in order to allow you time to address the challenges that impacted your academic success. Please review the Academic Standing Guidelines for detailed information on academic standing.

Under extraordinary circumstances, Academic Suspension I, Academic Suspension II, or Academic Dismissal is appeasable to the Scholastic Standing Appeals & Reinstatement Committee. Undergraduate students may appeal for reinstatement to probation status by submitting an Undergraduate Student Academic Appeal Form.

The Undergraduate Student Academic Appeal Form is an opportunity for you to provide information as to why you were unable to clear academic probation this semester, the actions you have taken to address the underlying factors that have impacted your academics and improve your GPA, and steps you would take if granted an additional semester to clear academic probation. 

What is NOT appropriate for the Scholastic Standing Appeals & Reinstatement Committee:

  • This process is not for graduate students appealing graduate dismissal.
  • Academic grievances concerning the grade itself. Consult the academic catalog for the appropriate grade appeal.
  • Appeals related to Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

Appeal Process & Deadlines

  • Within three (3) business days after Final Grade Submissions, the Office of the University Registrar will email academic standing letters.
  • Students who receive an academic standing letter for Academic Suspension I, Academic Suspension II, or Academic Dismissal must submit the Undergraduate Student Academic Appeal Form BEFORE the deadline to appeal their academic standing status.
  • The Appeals and Reinstatement Committee will review all submissions and supporting documentation provided by the student and the Academic Coaching Program.
  • Decisions for reinstatement will be made and students will be notified within three (3) business days of the Appeals and Reinstatement Committee meeting.
  • Upon notification of reinstatement, students will be required to meet with their Academic Advisor to develop a course schedule and their Academic Success Coach to develop a success plan.
