If you believe there are extenuating circumstances associated with your first academic suspension, you may appeal for continued enrollment by submitting the Continued Enrollment Appeal form. 

PLEASE NOTE:  If you were enrolled in JMU summer session classes, and your post-summer session academic standing is Academic Probation or Good Standing, you do NOT need to submit an appeal form in order to return to JMU for the fall semester.

There is no appeal following a second suspension.

  • Submit the Continued Enrollment Appeal Form by the applicable deadline.   
  • The Continued Enrollment Appeal Form will automatically be directed to the applicable Associate/Assistant Dean.  You will receive a written response from your Associate/Assistant Dean concerning your appeal within 2-3 weeks.
    • If your appeal is granted, you will receive a letter listing continued enrollment conditions you must agree to in order to return for fall.
      • Carefully review the stated conditions. Failure to fulfill all conditions will result in an additional academic suspension.
      • If you opt to agree to the conditions and continue enrollment at JMU, submit the signed and dated letter to the specified office by the deadline stated in the letter.
    • If your request for continued enrollment is rejected, or if you neglect to send an appeal letter by the applicable deadline, you will be ineligible to return to JMU for the fall semester and you will be dropped from all fall classes.

REMINDER:  If your GPA reached Academic Probation or Good Standing during Summer Session, you do not need to submit an appeal form in order to return to JMU for the fall semester.
