Would you appeal or go on your own for a while? *PIOG*

Posted by   + Show Post

  So I first started to school in the Summer of 2010. I got in way over my head with my classes and my grades for that semester were: B, F, F, F and my GPA was 1.2. In the Spring of 2011 I ended up going back but then had to withdraw due to my dad's unexpected passing. I was put on academic probation/ academic warning. In the summer of 2011 I went back and attended and finished the semester with a C,C,C, F and my GPA was 1.5. I was put on academic suspension.

I took sometime off and didn't go back until last year which was the Fall of 2012 and I was allowed back only when I appealed my suspension status. I ended the semester with an A, C, C and F. The F was in Pyschology and I knew I would fail that class when we were less than halfway through due to my work schedule and not knowing that the exams were done on campus. GPA for the semester was a 2.0

My cumlative GPA is a 1.7 which is has to be at least a 2.0 and I have to have a completion rate of 67%. I am unsure of my completion rate but I am wondering would it even be worth it to appeal?? I know why I failed and I know what steps I need to take to rectify the situation though

I got an email in December letting me know I was terminated due to my cumlative GPA only being a 1.7. I have the option to appeal and go back. I also received an email from the college congratulating me on improving my GPA immensely.

Based on this info would you appeal and if so any ideas on how to structure the appeal letter?

Hmmm IDK then. I'll have to call tomorrow to double check. I thought it followed you

 The credits do transfer but with Financial Aid it follows you so if you are termed/suspended at one school than it applies everywhere.

All you can do is appeal and hope it goes well. If you credits transfer, that's another route, and one you'll have to be prepared to take if they reject your appeal.


I've never heard of that. I was dismissed at one school due to extenuating circumstances (emergency situation which I couldn't explain at the time to them until I was safe) and enrolled in another one with no problem.

It might just be a particular school or a set of particular schools. I've never been denied financial aid based on my grades- if I had, I wouldn't be in school now, because my grades for my first year of college during the second semester right out of high school were atrocious- but that's what I get for tryin to be all jazzy and be a double major at age 20.

I say go for it. But only if you are honestly ready to put in the work. I know that life happens and it throws you off track, but if school is something you really want to pursue, you'll figure it out. Good luck. And keep us updated.
