Appeal for an Extension of the Deadline to Declare a Business Major
Students who have not completed the requirements to declare their major and move into the Advanced Program by the deadlines described in the VCU Bulletin will be asked to seek a major outside of the School of Business.
A student who wishes to appeal separation from the School of Business must submit her or his appeal prior to the start of the next semester in which the student registers for classes.
Students may appeal for an extension of their deadline through their advisor, who will make an appeal on their behalf to the Director of Advising or Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies in the School of Business. The Director of Advising or Associate Dean may, at his or her discretion, extend the period needed to meet the requirements, generally by only one semester. Students may also be required to meet with the Director of Advising or Associate Dean to make an appeal request in person.If an extension is not granted and the student wishes to appeal the decision, the appeal will be heard by the School Undergraduate Programs Committee (SUPC), which may establish a subcommittee for this purpose.
Students who have missed their deadline to declare a major in business or who have been separated from the business program may appeal to re-enter the School of Business no sooner than 24 months after the end of the student’s most recent semester in the program.
