Academic Appeal FAQ

A student who has been academically suspended or dismissed from the university and feels it was due to circumstances beyond his/her control may appeal in writing to the Registrar for special consideration. If the Registrar desires, the student’s request can be forwarded to the Academic Appeals Committee for dispensation. This committee is composed of eight members; two student members plus one faculty member from each of the academic colleges; the School of Agriculture; and the School of Nursing. The committee reviews each case and makes decisions based on information provided them by the student or other individuals. The student may be present for the hearing or may present his case in writing only. The student comes before the committee alone. Guests are not able to speak or be present.

Request for Academic Appeal Hearing Form

The completed form, with attached documentation, should be returned to the Registrar’s Office. All appeal forms must be on file in the Registrar’s Office no later than seven (7) days prior to the beginning of the relevant semester. After three (3) suspensions, a student is not eligible to return to Murray State.

Completed forms should be mailed to the following address:
