However, the student may appeal their academic suspension to the SPC Admissions Committee by submitting the required documents listed below by the set deadline.

Transfer students who were placed on academic suspension at the conclusion of the spring term may enroll in the summer sessions and attempt to improve their cumulative GPA.  Students do not have to file an academic appeal to attend during the summer.  However, the student will remain ineligible for the fall semester and must irrespectively appeal their academic suspension in order to attend the fall semester.
