Appeal Expectations

Read the instructions below very carefully, they are important for the success of your appeal.

  • Fully answer every part of every question.
    Provide proof and reasoning for everything you include.
  • It is your responsibility to provide complete reasoning for the committee to approve your appeal.

If you submit only a few sentences per question, your appeal is extremely likely to be denied. Treat these questions like an essay.

Explain the reasons for your academic decline.

  • Include information on all of the semesters affecting your GPA was below 2.0, not just the most recent
  • Identify all specific incidents and/or causes for your academic decline (be comprehensive, but stick to relevant details)
  • Show honesty and self-reflection (an understanding of what role you played in the situation)

Explain your plan of action for the future.

  • Identify how you have addressed the reasons for your academic decline (How have the issues you were experiencing been solved?)
  • Explain the steps and responsibility you are currently taking to help fulfill the terms of the probation contract
  • Explain the steps and responsibility you will take in the future to fulfill the terms of the probation contract
  • Include the ultimate goals you are achieving by being enrolled in this university

You may also attach documentation within the form.

If you would like assistance reviewing your appeal before submitting it, The MSU Denver Writing Center is available at https://www.msudenver.edu/writing-center/.

Allow 7-10 working days for the decision to be made. You will be emailed the response to your MSU Denver email address about whether your appeal has been approved or denied. If your appeal is approved, you may make an appointment, with Kim Williams, to register for classes by calling 303-605-5644.

Please take into account that the Academic Review Committee decision is final as is stated in the University catalog. If you are denied and still wish to speak to a professional staff member, you may make an appointment. However, be aware that the meeting will be to discuss the options that you have, NOT to discuss the decision that was made by the Academic Review Committee.
