Following notification of a decision for dismissal or academic deceleration, a student may appeal, in writing, the decision to the Dean. Such appeals must be received by the Dean within three working days after the student is officially notified of the dismissal or deceleration decision. The Dean makes the final decision on appeals. The Dean may grant an appeal only if a student can demonstrate one of the following: 

  1. Bias of one or more Committee members.
  2. Material information not available to the Committee at the time of its initial decision.
  3. Procedural error.

 The student being evaluated may request to appear before the Committee during its deliberation.

The student must attend all didactic classes in which they are registered until the appeal process is complete. Students registered in a rotation course may be placed on a mandatory leave of absence until the appeal process is finalized.
