The Committee makes its decision based on the student's written petition as supported by appropriate documentation (i.e., verification of extended hospitalization from a doctor or hospital, transfer orders signed by a military commander, etc.).

Appeals submitted after 90 days must be supported with extraordinary circumstances to be favorably considered.
