There are times when circumstances in life affect your academic progress. Perhaps there have been changes in health for you or a family member or a change in a work schedule, or other events that have directly impacted on your attendance or grades. When those situations arise, the Academic Appeals Process is in place for you. It gives you the chance to request that an exception be made to an academic policy or procedure at LaGuardia.
You may file an appeal to ask the Academic Appeals committee to approve the following changes:
When is the Deadline to file an Academic Appeal?
The Deadline to submit an appeal is ONE semester after you received the grade you are appealing. Example: If you are appealing a grade from the Spring 2020 semester, your deadline would be the end of the Fall 2020 semester. However, if you have not been in attendance since the grade you are appealing was posted, you may appeal the grade during the semester of your return. Example: If you are appealing a grade from the Spring 2019 semester, take a leave, and return in Spring 2021, you may proceed with the appeal.
