Academic Appeal Process

The purpose of Hostos Academic Appeals Policy and Procedure is to provide equitable and orderly processes by which to request reconsideration of an academic decision.

Types of appeals:

An Academic Appeal is for a student who wants to return to school the semester immediately following the one where they are academically dismissed. 

A Re-Admission Appeal is for a student who is out of school for at least 1 semester and wants to return.

Students are responsible for their academic choices and for meeting the standards of academic performance established for each study or course in which they enroll. Students may appeal an academic decision if they believe that an academic judgment was unfair or that the college’s academic policies were not followed or were applied incorrectly.  Both student and instructor or decision-maker involved in the appeal have a right to a meaningful opportunity to be heard and to respond to information and documentation presented.
Please allow up to two weeks to receive a response from the Office of Student Life/Academic Appeals Unit.
