A student who has been academically dismissed from the RSHS, due to extenuating circumstances beyond his or her control, or for any of the University and RSHS policy violations listed in the RSHS Academic Student Handbook, has the right to appeal when significant extenuating circumstances affected the student‘s ability to perform academically. This should be discussed with the respective Academic Advisor before a formal appeal is sent to the Student Standing Committee, as stated in the RSHS Academic Student Handbook. Appeals to the Student Standing Committee should be submitted in writing within the specified period of time indicated in the initial notification letter. You may add information regarding your appeal to the form below or you may use this form as a guide in writing your appeal letter. Supporting documentation (e.g., letter from physician) must be included.
