In order to be in good academic standing, and to be making academic progress toward a degree or certificate, a student must meet a minimum cumulative grade point average and successfully accumulate credits according to the standards outlined in the SUNY Broome catalog. View the standards for academic progress.
If, when last enrolled at SUNY Broome, you failed to meet one, or both, of these standards, you are currently academically dismissed from the college. Your options include enrolling non-matriculated or applying for an academic appeal. Please select an option below to learn more information.
You can enroll as a non-matriculated student at SUNY Broome. Non-matriculated students take courses but are not enrolled in a formal degree program and therefore do not receive Federal financial aid (grants and/or loans). Students enrolled non-matriculated may utilize campus support services, but will be responsible for all tuition and fees associated with their course(s) without the aid of Federal financial aid.
If you wish to enroll as a non-matriculated student, please use: Course Registration for Non-Matriculated Students form.
Apply for an academic appeal
Apply for re-admittance following an academic dismissal by completing the academic appeal application. Please use this rubric to complete the academic appeal application (pdf).
Once you have successfully submitted an Academic Appeal application, you will receive an email confirmation from the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails regarding the academic appeals process will be sent from email@example.com to the email address you specified on the academic appeal application.
After successfully submitting your application, the academic appeals committee reviews your application according to the rubric specified above. The academic appeal process, including committee review, takes time, so there may be a lag time between submission, notification of appeal approval or denial, and required next steps. Please view the FAQ below to learn about additional steps involved in the academic appeals process.
Academic appeals FAQs
How many times can I submit an academic appeal application for spring 2022?
Students will have two opportunities to complete the application, if the first submission is deemed insufficient by the committee. You will be notified if your application needs to be re-submitted via the email you submitted to your appeal application. To avoid a delay, please provide as much detail as possible on your application with reference to specific campus resources and study strategies.
Academic resources can be found at SUNY Broome Campus Life.
What are the next steps if my academic appeal application is approved?
If your academic appeal application is approved, you will be notified via the email you submitted to your appeal application and must complete the following steps:
- Register for a mandatory academic continuance seminar. The registration form will be emailed to you. There are two date options for the seminar for spring 2022 readmission: December 8 at 2:00 pm and January 4 at 4:00 pm.
- Following the academic continuance seminar, monitor your email for the Academic Continuance Plan document. Sign and email the document to firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens if I was previously on an Academic Continuance Plan?
If you enrolled on an Academic Continuance Plan previously, you would have been required to maintain a 2.00 semester GPA and complete at least 70% of all enrolled credits by earning a satisfactory final grade.
If you did not meet both of these conditions, you incurred a permanent loss of Federal financial aid here at SUNY Broome, and therefore, will have to pay for your tuition without the assistance of PELL, TAP or Federal student loans until such time as you meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
When will my academic dismissal hold be lifted?
Your academic dismissal hold will not be lifted until your application is approved and you have attended the seminar and submitted the signed Academic Continuance Plan. Please plan accordingly to have your hold lifted as soon as possible for registration.
What happens if my academic appeal application is denied?
If your academic appeal is denied, you will be notified via the email you submitted to your appeal application and will need to re-submit an academic appeal application for a future semester or enroll non-matriculated (without financial aid assistance).
What is the spring 2022 academic appeal deadline?
The Spring 2022 Academic Appeal application deadline is December 15 at 11:59 p.m.
Academic Appeal Application Deadline
The Spring 2022 Academic Appeal application deadline is December 15 at 11:59 p.m. All Appeals submitted after December 15 will not be considered for review and you will need to complete an academic appeal for the Fall 2022 semester.
If you wish to enroll as a non-matriculated student, please use the Course Registration for Non-Matriculated Students form.
