Every student who is not offered admission to the College has the right to appeal their decision. The committee only accepts student-written letters of appeal.

An applicant should only appeal if there is substantial new information that the committee was not aware of at the time of the original decision.

An applicant should not appeal just to request a second review of their application. 

The committee will review appeals and render a decision before the deposit deadline for each semester (May 1 for fall, January 1 for spring).

Transfer students may email an appeal request (with additional necessary documentation) at any time to Freshmen students may email an appeal request to, and the subject must be marked "Appeal of admissions decision for {insert name of student}" with the appropriate name inserted as indicated.
