Students may choose to appeal academic policies at any point during
their undergraduate career. To submit an academic appeal, students
Step 1: The student should first consult with their
academic advisor, then schedule an appointment with the coordinator of
academic appeals, Mae Fitchett (phone 407-646-1559), to discuss your individual situation and to determine required documentation.
Step 2: Submit a written appeal online.
Write a one- to two-page explanation of what academic policy you wish
to appeal and why you should be granted an exception to the policy.
Explain any extenuating circumstances concerning your appeal. Provide supporting documentation
that you wish to include in your appeal to Mae Fitchett. The Academic
Appeals Committee does not meet with the student, but carefully
considers all information relevant to the appeal in their deliberation.
Also, the Committee takes into account matters of presentation such as
grammar and spelling. It is recommended that students carefully
proofread their appeal before clicking the "submit" and "confirmation"
Step 3: Review your DegreeWorks audit for accuracy.
Report any discrepancies to the Office of Student Records. Your
DegreeWorks Audit is accessible via Foxlink using Firefox or Internet
Step 4: Submit all supporting documentation to accompany your appeal to Mae Fitchett (308 Mills Hall, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via fax at 407-646-1576) with an explanation or note that it is to accompany the appeal. Students should follow-up to confirm that documents were received.
The committee will discuss appeals only after all required
documentation has been submitted. Required documentation also may
include information from the advisor and/or professor. It is the
student’s responsibility to ensure that all documentation is submitted
by the dates outlined below; appeals received after the student deadline
will be reviewed at the next appeals meeting.
Currently enrolled students will receive written notification in
their Rollins e-mail and campus mailbox within 5-7 business days after a
decision is rendered. Non-matriculated students will receive
notification by regular mail to the permanent mailing address on file in
