NOTE: If you are not a UCF student and were recently denied undergraduate admission to the university, and are seeking to appeal that denied admission decision, contact Undergraduate Admissions for more information. The Appeals process outlined below only applies to decisions made on Academic Record Changes in the Office of Academic Services.
Under university rules, students may appeal a decision on an Academic Record Change petition to the Admissions and Standards Committee, provided there is a legitimate reason for the appeal. A general dissatisfaction with the decision is not adequate grounds for an appeal. New information or additional supporting documentation not originally submitted with the initial petition must be provided to the Committee for consideration. Thoroughness is extremely important to the appeal process. Be sure all additional and necessary facts are included as well as all possible sources of documentation
The Admissions and Standards Committee generally meets weekly on Tuesdays to review student appeals. The Academic Services Office must receive the completed appeal paperwork by the Friday deadline. The Committee will conduct a preliminary evaluation of the request to determine if there is a basis for an appeal or not. The student will be notified of the outcome within a week. If the Committee does not find new information or additional supporting documentation, the appeal request will be rejected. If there is a basis for an appeal, the student has the option to appear before the Committee on the following Tuesday or at the next meeting.
Students will receive notification of the Committee's decision promptly by mail after the meeting or they may stop in the Academic Services Office at Millican Hall 210 with a photo ID or call us and receive the decision after 1 PM the afternoon of the meeting.
