Academic Appeals and Waivers
Students may appeal an academic decision. Such appeals must be filed within 30 days of the date of the notification of that decision. All appeals must be submitted in writing to the dean of the School in which the student is enrolled. Note that many academic decisions do not require a formal appeal. Students may begin by submitting a statement of why they believe the decision to be in error, including such supporting materials as course descriptions or syllabi, to the Advisement Center.
Request for a waiver of a specific requirement and/or College policy must be submitted in writing to the dean of the School in which the student is enrolled.
Administrative (Non-Academic) Appeals and Waivers
Students may appeal a decision from any office in the College regarding an administrative action, policy or procedure. Such an appeal must be submitted in writing to the Administrative Appeals Committee via mail (Thomas Edison State College - Administrative Appeals Committee, 101 W. State St., Trenton, NJ 08608-1176), email at [email protected] or fax at (609) 943-5232.
Supporting documentation not submitted with the appeal may otherwise be required by the Committee. The Administrative Appeals Committee considers administrative matters involving financial relief, waivers, exceptions to policies, and other special considerations of departmental decisions across all divisions of the College.
