University (Transfer) Admission Appeals

If a student who has earned an Associate in Arts degree is accepted into a Florida public university, but is denied admission to a program, the university must state the reasons for the denial. This is usually done in a letter from the dean of the college, school or department. Any request for further clarification should include:

  1. a copy of the letter of denial
  2. a copy of the student’s transcripts
  3. a copy of the page(s) from the counseling manual or catalog outlining the program requirements
  4. a signed statement requesting a review of the denial.

Students should keep a copy of all correspondence and a log of all telephone contacts. A copy of all of the above information should be forwarded to the university admissions office and the university articulation officer.
