THE ACADEMIC APPEALS PROCESS
Students may also appeal Academic Suspension or Academic Dismissal decisions. In each of the preceding cases, students should follow the Academic Appeals Process described below. Students may apply online (registrar.aud.edu) for readmission to the university upon completion of their Academic Suspension period.
 
Appeal of Academic Suspension and Academic Dismissal

A student with compelling supporting evidence may appeal an Academic Suspension or Academic Dismissal decision in writing. The Academic Standing Appeal Form, available in the Academic Support Division, is to be used for this purpose. The Associate Director of Student Retention and Success will assist the student in determining whether there is a case for an appeal and will inform the student of the documentation that needs to be submitted with the completed form if there is a case for an appeal.

Completed appeal forms with accompanying documentation must be submitted to the Associate Director of Student Retention and Success not later than the appeals submission date published in the Academic Calendar.

 
Applications for Readmission from Academic Suspension

Students applying for readmission from Academic Suspension must complete the Academic Standing Appeal Form for this purpose. This form is available in the Academic Support Division. The student should attach a letter detailing his/her activities during the suspension period and should explain why the student believes his/her academic performance will improve in the future. Other required documentation should be provided with the form.

Completed appeal forms with accompanying documentation must be submitted to the Associate Director of Student Retention and Success not later than the appeals submission date published in the Academic Calendar.

Although students who are academically suspended from AUD often choose to take courses at other institutions to improve areas of weakness or to indicate seriousness of continued academic pursuits, they will under no circumstances receive transfer credits for those courses upon their readmission to AUD.
