Following notification of a decision by the Preclinical Promotions Committee, or the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee, a student may appeal the decision in writing within three business days to the Dean of AZCOM. The Dean may grant an appeal only if a student can demonstrate one of the following:
- Bias of one or more committee members
- Material information not available to the committee at the time of its initial decision (not to include student's decision not to appear at required attendance meeting of the committee)
- Procedural error
During the appeal process, students must continue to attend classes. Failure of the student to meet with the Preclinical Promotions Committee, or the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee, does not constitute a reason for appeal.
