Financial Aid/Assistance Appeals Committee

Students who fail to maintain satisfactory academic progress due to extenuating circumstances have the right to appeal their financial-assistance suspension. The primary responsibility of the committee is to make recommendations on student appeals. Students must make their appeals in writing and be willing to meet with the committee. The committee will also annually review the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy and forward recommendations for changes through the Director of Financial Assistance – Alpine and the Assistant Director of Financial Aid – RGC.

The Alpine Committee will consist of eight members appointed by the President: the Director of Financial Assistance, one additional representative from Financial Assistance, one representative from each of the three colleges (ANRS, Arts and Sciences, and Professional Studies), one representative from the Office of the Registrar, one representative from Student Life, and one representative from Enrollment Management. The committee chair is elected by the membership.
