If your original petition is denied, you may consider initiating an appeal if you have strong grounds to request a re-evaluation. Through a written statement, an appeal will escalate your case for re-consideration each time your petition is denied, up to three times.
Before submitting an appeal, please meet with an Academic Advisor to discuss your situation. Additionally, you should be prepared to submit new or additional supporting documentation in order to strengthen your case.
Appeal to the Committee on Standing (COS) within 90 days of the original petition decision. Your appeal must include new information that was not submitted in the initial petition request.

Appeals must be submitted through AskRegistrar by following the steps below:
- Select the Petitions category, and Appeal Submission as the topic.
- Enter the petition tracking number of the petition you are appealing.
- Upload your appeal statement and any supporting documentation in a PDF format.
If your appeal to COS is denied, you may escalate the matter.
