LATE APPEALS FOR REINSTATEMENT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED PAST THE DEADLINE DATE.

If a student misses the deadline to appeal for reinstatement for the semester in which the student wishes to return, the student will be notified in writing that they have missed the deadline date for filing an appeal, and their appeal will NOT be reviewed for that semester.  Additionally, the student will be forwarded a Returning Student Checklist outlining the steps the student needs to take upon their return to Lincoln after their suspension has been completed.

The steps of an appeal process are outlined below:

 

  1. Submit any supporting documentation with the appeal (i.e. proof of attendance at tutoring and/or mentoring, medical documentation, letters of support from faculty/staff, family, etc.)
  2. The appeal is heard by the Committee
  3. A recommendation is made by the Committee to the Vice President of Academic Affairs/Provost
  4. A decision from the Vice President of Academic Affairs/Provost regarding the appeal will be sent to the address the student supplied on the ARC Appeal Application Form
