Transfer Appeals Process

Before completing a request for an appeal, please look into the following options:

  • Check within Student Planning that you are enrolled in the correct program of study. If you were evaluated under a different program of study or you recently changed your program of study, please request a re-evaluation here
  • Do you see 1999/2999 credit on your record? Consult with an academic advisor to see if a course substitution can be an option for you. A course substitution is initiated by an advisor and approved by the Division of Academic Affairs.
