Suspension Appeal

Students have the right to appeal their first and second suspension for failure to meet the academic standards of the University. A student with a third suspension does not have the right to appeal. If a student does not exercise their right to appeal the suspension, he or she will be eligible to reapply for admission to the University at the conclusion of two semesters (two grading periods, summer, fall and spring).

An Appeal for Academic Suspension form is available online and must be submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs no later than the deadline published on the appeal form.

An academic suspension by a student requires a two term (semester) suspension. There are three terms or semesters (summer, fall and spring) per year. A suspended student who returns after completing the suspension time period may be readmitted on probation and is not required to follow the appeal process.

This academic appeal process is NOT associated with the financial aid suspension appeal. If you have been placed on financial aid suspension, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at regarding any possible financial disqualification or warning action.

To verify your suspension status, you may view your semester grades in Campus Connection. If you encounter any difficulty viewing your grades, please contact the MSU Service Desk at (701) 788-4739.
