Academic Suspension Appeal

All students at ACHS are required to maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of their program.

SAP is evaluated at the end of each semester. Students that have not met ACHS’s SAP standards (detailed online here and in the ACHS Program Catalog) are required to submit an appeal to apply for continued enrollment at ACHS.

In order to submit your appeal, please respond to the questions below. Here are a few tips for writing your appeal explanation statement.

Admit the problem: Take a hard look at your situation to determine what has kept you from making satisfactory academic progress. Maybe something beyond your control occurred, or perhaps you need help with time management or study skills. Indicate what caused the problem and what steps you’ve taken to ensure that it has been resolved.

Provide any relevant supporting information: Please provide as much information as appropriate. Valid reasons for an appeal include:

  • medical emergencies 
  • severe health issues
  • severe personal or family problems 
  • financial or personal catastroph
