Academic Suspension Appeal

College of Education and Human Development

To appeal an academic suspension, use the form linked below.

The deadline for appealing a suspension is three weeks from receiving notification of the suspension from the Registrar's Office.

Before submitting an appeal, please read the university's policy regarding suspension, taken from the undergraduate course catalog:


Scholastic Probation, Suspension, Dismissal

Scholastic Probation and Removal from Probation. An undergraduate student whose cumulative A&M-Corpus Christi grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.0 on academic work done at the University is placed on scholastic probation. A student is removed from scholastic probation after completing a semester or summer term at A&M-Corpus Christi during which a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater is achieved.

Suspension. A student who is on scholastic probation and who fails to make a minimum GPA of 2.0 for any semester or term is placed on academic suspension. A student suspended for the first time may not enroll at the University for the next long-session semester (fall or spring) and any intervening summer session. A student suspended for the second time will be suspended for one year. After a first or second suspension, a student may re-enroll on probationary status. The student must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.0 for that and all subsequent semesters and terms until a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is attained. A student who does not attain this GPA is placed on suspension again. Under extraordinary circumstances, academic suspension is appealable to the student’s academic dean.

Dismissal. A third suspension results in dismissal from the University. In most cases, a student who is dismissed because of three suspensions is not readmitted to the University. The student may, however, petition for a review of the case after a period of two calendar years. Information on procedures may be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar. Readmission is permitted only in exceptional circumstances and if authorized by the dean of the college to which admission is sought. If the student does not attain the required GPA (as described above) after such readmittance, the student is dismissed and may not petition for readmission for a period of a minimum of five calendar years.
