Admission Appeals Process

If you were denied admission, missed a deadline, or have an extenuating circumstance that you feel should be considered, you may submit an appeal to the SDSU Global Campus Evaluations Department. All appeals must be submitted within 15 days from the date of denial. You may submit one appeal per academic term. The following are common grounds for an appeal:

  • Request for re-evaluation of denied admission
  • Request to submit late admission application
  • Request to submit late transcripts, documents, or test scores
  • Request to submit late Terms of Admission
  • Request to have application rolled over to a future term

Steps for Submitting an Appeal

To submit an appeal, please fill out the SDSU Global Campus Admission Appeal Form. Along with the form, you’ll need to provide required documentation, which includes:

  • All unofficial transcripts
  • A written letter explaining your request for appeal and extenuating circumstances (hospitalization, military services, family crisis)
  • Documentation supporting these extenuating circumstances (if applicable)
