Academic Appeal

 

Academic Standing (Suspension) Appeal

Southern University and A & M College – Baton Rouge recognizes that, on rare occasions, serious extenuating circumstances may prevent you from adhering to the established policies and procedures of the University. This Academic Standing Appeal Process was designed for these situations. If you have received notification from the Registrar Office that you are on Academic Suspension, you will need to complete and submit the Academic Appeal Application.

However, the University strictly adheres to its published policies, procedures and deadlines. Only in EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES will appeals be considered and approved. The burden of proof of these circumstances falls upon the student. The Academic Standing Policy can be found below. Please complete all steps outlined on this form to appeal your academic ineligibility. Failure to submit documentation and follow instructions will result in a delay in the decision of your appeal or denial. Once a decision has been reached, you will be sent an email to your SUBR email address, the email address placed on application and a formal letter to address placed on application from the Academic Appeal Committee (afappeals@subr.edu).

 

Appeal Applications may be submitted via email to afappeals@subr.edu or via postal mail to

P. O. Box 9263, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70813 

 

For deadline information, please see the Timeline table below, deadlines are bold.
