Candidates who have been suspended or whose admission status is otherwise inactive may appeal to the Graduate Education Programs' Advisory Council to be readmitted or to have their admission status reactivated. Such requests must be submitted in writing to the Director of Graduate Education Programs. The request should include:

  • a brief summary of the circumstance(s) that led to the suspension or inactive status;
  • a clear statement of the request;
  • a brief statement of how, if readmitted, the candidate will work to prevent future, similar matters from arising; and
  • copies of any non-confidential, relevant correspondence between the candidate and any office or individual at McNeese.

Correspondence records are property of the candidate and may be submitted voluntarily. Copies of such records will help to expedite the review of the candidate's request; however, such copies are not required for the request to be considered.

Candidates should remember that an appeal request is formal, written correspondence. It should be presented professionally and free of any language, grammar, and formatting errors or inconsistencies.
