  • Mailing address and phone number
  • Email address
  • Detailed narrative to include supporting rationale and reason for appeal
  • Documentation which supports the request. This could include course descriptions, course syllabus, course objectives, learning outcomes, transcripts or other relevant information

Thomas Edison State College’s Office of the Registrar will conduct a review of the credit evaluation and respond to the student in writing with a decision.

Formal Appeals Undergraduate students not satisfied with the Office of the Registrar’s determination or who believe that the decision is not consistent with the Statewide Transfer and Articulation Agreement may appeal in writing to the Associate Provost within 30 calendar days of receipt of the decision of the Office of the Registrar. The appeal should contain the same information required for the registrar’s review (see above) along with any additional explanations or arguments the student wishes to have considered. The Associate Provost will consider the appeal within 30 calendar days of receipt. In their deliberation, the Associate Provost may consult with subject matter experts or other members of the Provost’s staff. She or he may affirm, reject, modify or adjust the transfer credit evaluation as deemed appropriate and will inform the student, in writing, of the College’s decision. The decision of the Provost’s Office is final and may not be appealed within the institution.
