Many University Programs are tough to get into and sometimes even tougher to stay in. There are plenty of reasons students find themselves struggling, but when your grades dip too low, you may face dismissal. Students that are dismissed from their programs often find it even tougher to continue their education and suffer a huge loss in opportunities available to them. If you ever find yourself in danger of being dismissed or dismissed from your university, CALL (347) 762-6334.
There may be grounds to appeal your Final Grade or ultimate dismissal from school. Aside from the obvious grounds for appeal, like discrimination, retaliation, arbitrary and capricious grading, etc... there may be other grounds such as extenuating circumstances that can be used to appeal your final grade or dismissal.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE - Almost every school is different, but most have very short timelines for appealing final grades or dimissals. Missing these deadlines could end up precluding you from appealing. So be sure to check your student handbook or ask your School's Dean how long you have to appeal.
HIRE AN ATTORNEY - The academic appeals process can be difficult. There is a strong emphasis that students advocate for themselves during these administrative appeal processes. However, taking the appeal on by yourself could lead to you leaving out important arguments that may have won your appeal. Hiring an experienced Academic Appeals Attorney will ensure that your arguments are pursuasive and complete. Our experienced education attorneys are ready to help you appeal dismissals and final grades or consult on any other matter that may arise at University.
