Students on academic probation who do not meet academic retention standards are suspended
from the university for one semester. On the second (or subsequent) suspension for
failure to meet retention standards, the period of suspension is indefinite. Where
extenuating circumstances are established as primary factors relating to low grades,
a student may petition to waive the period of suspension.
The appeal process is initiated with a written petition which can be obtained online here or in the Student Life and Enrollment office.
The completed application for an academic status appeal can be:
1.) hand delivered to the Student Life and Enrollment office, Burgin E. Dossett Hall, suite 302/303.
2.) faxed to (423) 439-6454
3.) mailed to ETSU P.O.Box 70725, Johnson City, TN 37614-1700
The contact person for the academic appeal process is Theresa Marlow, (423) 439-5377 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
