Policies and Procedures
 
Admission Appeals
Undergraduate applications from individuals who do not meet the minimum admissions requirements may be reviewed by The Faculty Committee on Student Admissions. Unless there is some new information that was not available at the time your application was reviewed (i.e courses in progress, new grades), there is no need to appeal. If a student has special talents or abilities, physical, learning or emotional disabilities, or has suffered personal or family hardships, may appeal the initial admission decision. The committee is made up of University faculty members and administrators who evaluate admission based on evidence other than academic work. The committee determines the student's ability to succeed in future academic endeavors. Students must appeal in writing, submit letters of recommendation, a personal statement and any other documentation that would substantiate admission as an exception.

Misconduct
The University reserves the right to deny admission to an applicant because of past misconduct, regardless of location, that may adversely affect the University community. Therefore, it is important for all applicants to provide complete and accurate information on the admissions application in regard to disciplinary action for scholastic or any other type of misconduct. (Florida Board of Governors Rule 6C-6.001).

Student Records
Information contained in a student's educational record becomes the property of the University and will not be released or copied to the student or a third party. A third party shall be defined as anyone other than the student but does not include, faculty, staff, and agents of the University having responsibility for working with the student in registration, counseling, financial aid or any other activity directly related to the student's academic program. The student must provide written consent for any third party, other than University staff, to access the student's educational record .
