Appealing to the Articulation Coordinating Committee

If the denial is upheld at the university level and there is still a question of potential violation of the articulation agreement, the student may request a hearing before the Articulation Coordinating Committee (Florida Education Center, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-0400). All of the avenues available to the student at the institutional level should be pursued prior to appealing to the Articulation Coordinating Committee. The student should keep a copy of all correspondence and a log of all telephone contacts. The procedures for filing such an appeal with the Articulation Coordinating Committee are as follows:

  1. The student submits a statement of the problem, a copy of the letter of denial from the college/university, a copy of the transcript in question, a copy of the page(s) from the catalog or counseling manual, and a request to have a hearing before the Articulation Coordinating Committee for purposes of adjudication.
  2. All student appeals and policy concerns are reviewed by the Articulation Appeals Subcommittee, which then forwards its recommendation(s) to the Articulation Coordinating Committee. Issues not resolved by the subcommittee are sent to the full committee for resolution.
  3. The Articulation Coordinating Committee and Articulation Appeals Subcommittee may request the appearance of representatives or statements from the receiving or sending institution to provide additional information or clarification on the issue.
  4. A decision letter on the disposition of an appeal is written by the chair of the Articulation Coordinating Committee to the division deans, and copies are simultaneously sent to all persons involved, including the student. The decision of the Articulation Coordinating Committee shall be final.
