You can only appeal if you have not exceeded six semesters of TAP. If you choose to appeal, you must submit your TAP appeal package to the Dean of Students' Office. Appeals are not granted automatically. A committee must review your package and it will take a minimum of five working days to process a response. The decision made by the Committee is final. Student Appeal Check-Off List: The official documents that will substantiate your unusual circumstances (i.e., letter from the doctor). A detailed letter of explanation, describing the unusual circumstances responsible for your poor performance. Description of the remedial action that you will take to improve your academic performance and reach the requirements for the next semester of TAP eligibility. A copy of your grade transcript.
