ACADEMIC DISMISSAL Academic Standing Appeal KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY DATE RECEIVED IN OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR NAME Address Email Address @students.kennesaw.edu City KSU ID # State Zip Phone Number Term and Year Dissmissed Undergraduate Student FIRST DISMISSAL SECOND DISMISSAL Graduate Student THIRD DISMISSAL REASON FOR APPEAL In accordance with University policy, dismissal is automatic when a student's grade point average falls below the minimum specified in the Catalog. Exceptions to this policy are granted very infrequently and only in cases where the student can demonstrate extraordinary circumstances at the time the academic difficulty was encountered. Such circumstances as “working too many hours” or “personal problems” are insufficient reasons for an exception to University policy. If you believe your situation is unique and truly involves extenuating circumstances, you may petition the Academic Standing Committee. The Committee will consider your appeal based solely on the information you submit with this form. The Committee will not interview students; therefore, it is necessary to be thorough. After the Committee has reviewed your appeal, the decision will be rendered in writing. APPEAL INSTRUCTIONS A complete Dismissal Appeal Packet consists of the following items: o Appeal Form completed and signed by the student (typewritten) o Typewritten appeal for consideration •State any unusual circumstances which resulted in your dismissal from the University.
