Appeals and Academic Concerns

Normandale provides petition and appeal processes for students whose circumstances cannot be resolved following normal college procedure.

Students may submit appeals for the following circumstances:

  • to drop or withdraw from classes after the deadline
  • to obtain a refund of tuition after the deadline
  • to be charged in-state tuition if classified initially as a non-resident of Minnesota
  • to be waived of a placement test requirement or course prerequisite
  • to be waived of an academic requirement or to have another course substituted for an academic requirement
  • to have transfer credit accepted after the initial review
  • to have a final class grade reviewed due to a perceived error in calculation or departure from the syllabus
  • to be allowed to enroll in classes after academic or disciplinary suspension
  • to be eligible to receive financial aid after financial aid suspension (if the student is otherwise eligible)
  • to have prior coursework excluded from credit and GPA calculations through Academic Renewal
  • to seek resolution for other academic concerns

Visit the Advising and Counseling Department or the Records Office for information about the procedures for submitting appeals and petitions.
