State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) acknowledges five academic classification
categories that apply to all students:
A student may appeal the academic classification by submitting to an advisor a letter of appeal no later than the first day of class for a full term (spring, summer, fall) after receiving the notification of the classification. The appeal would then be forwarded to the admissions committee for decision.
The letter must include clearly stated and documented examples of extenuating circumstances that prevented satisfactory progress. Examples of acceptable documentation include medical or legal statements and/or documents that verify the student's appeal request.
A letter stating the decision of the committee will be mailed to the student and a copy will be placed in the student's file.
If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the admissions committee, one final academic appeal may be initiated by submitting a letter of appeal to the Vice President of Student Affairs within 10 business days after the receipt of the written admissions committee decision. The decision of the Vice President of Student Affairs will be final.
