Academic Suspension & Dismissal Appeals
The Students First Office will host several “Preparing Your UNCG Academic Appeal” workshops to provide students with helpful information about the academic suspension and academic dismissal appeal process. During each 1 hour session, academic advisors will also be available to answer students’ individual questions.

As a student at UNCG, you are expected to maintain Academic Good Standing throughout your time at UNCG. Failure to do so may ultimately result in Academic Suspension or Academic Dismissal if students do not successfully meet the 2.3 Term GPA required to continue at the University while on Academic Probation.
However, in rare circumstances, you may encounter unexpected and extenuating circumstances that significantly inhibit your ability to meet the parameters of your probationary status. When situations like this arise, you may want to consider appealing your academic suspension or dismissal. If this appeal is granted, you would be permitted to continue your enrollment at the University without having to sit out for a designated period of time.
How the Academic Appeals Process Works...
Please review the Instructions for Academic Appeals thoroughly. Then, when you are ready, schedule an appointment with a Students First Office advisor to review the information you plan on presenting for review.
By meeting with a Students First Office advisor, you will:
- Review the information you provide in your letter of explanation to ensure all appropriate details have been given
- Evaluate your documentation to ensure all appropriate materials are included you're your appeal
- Receive guidance on next steps in the Academic Appeals review process
- Develop alternative plans for continuing academic progress should an appeal be denied
Once your appeal and accompanying documentation is complete, you should turn your materials in to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, 126 McIver Building, where it will be reviewed by the Academic Appeals Committee.
In order to appeal to return to classes, the appeal must be submitted by the dates listed below:
|Term to Continue||Appeal Deadline||Committee Decisions|
|Fall 2013||May 27, 2013 by 5:00 p.m.*
August 13, 2013 by 5:00 p.m.**
|May 31, 2013
August 16, 2013
*Students wishing to secure on-campus housing in Fall 2013 must submit an appeal by this date.
**This is the final appeal deadline for students wishing to attend Fall 2013 classes
Please note that all deadline and decisions are FINAL and NO EXCEPTIONS can be made.
After the Appeals Committee renders a decision about your appeal, you will receive further information via your UNCG email account (As such, please be sure to check it regularly so that you do not miss pertinent updates).
While the Students First Office is an excellent resource for helping you prepare your Academic Appeal, advisors do not serve on the committee and will not have any information regarding the committee's decisions. Once you receive a decision via email, any questions should be directed to the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
