ADMISSIONS APPEALS

Applicants who are denied admission to graduate programs at Central Connecticut State University may request reviews of these decisions through an appeal process. Such requests must be made in writing to the dean of the School of Graduate Studies and may include additional academic information (such as scores from standardized tests, grades in very recent courses, or letters of recommendation from instructors, etc.) which was not submitted with the original application. The dean will first consult the department offering the program for reconsideration of the applicant. Depending on the nature of the appeal, further consultation may be made with an appropriate designee of the academic school or the department chair of the relevant program before making a decision. The dean of the School of Graduate Studies will notify the student of the decision in writing. If an unfavorable decision is rendered, the applicant may request that the appeal be sent to the Graduate Standing Appeals Subcommittee of Graduate Studies. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.40 is required to be eligible to appeal.
