Academic Appeals

Appeals for students who have been placed on academic suspension are held after fall, spring and summer semesters. Students are notified by mail at their permanent address if they need to appeal. An e-mail is also sent to the student's SMSU e-mail account advising them to be watching for the letter and to notify the Academic Deans' Office if they do not receive it. Students should make sure their mailing address listed in E-services is correct.  It is the student's responsibility to update their permanent address.

MANDATORY steps in the Appeal Process:

  • Schedule an IN-PERSON Appeal OR submit a WRITTEN Appeal.  
  • Complete the electronic questionnaire

Both steps must be completed BEFORE the deadline, which is 10:00 a.m. the day before appeals are scheduled.  Instructions and links are included in the letter sent by the Academic Deans' Office.  The letter will also indicate if a video appeal via Zoom is an option.

Contact the Academic Deans' Office for further information.
