Purpose and Functions

The purpose of the Academic and Financial Aid Appeals Committee is to review, maintain and abide by standards set forth in state and federal regulations and institutional policy for academic admissions/readmissions and the award and administration of student financial aid (excluding scholarships) of students who are not making Satisfactory Academic Progress in their program. The committee's functions are to review standards annually and recommend policy and procedural changes as needed. The Academic and Financial Aid Appeals Committee review appeals submitted by students who have not maintained the minimum required institutional semester GPA for continued enrollment or admissions/readmissions into East Georgia State College, and to review all appeals from students whose financial aid has been denied, modified or withdrawn due to circumstances which impeded on the successful completion of their academic progress. Permanent records of committee decisions for students are maintained by the Registrar.
