I am writing to appeal my academic dismissal from NOVA Southeastern University. I was not surprised, but very upset to receive a notice of my dismissal. I sat out for a year and would like to be accepted for the upcoming semester. I admit, I had a very difficult time during my last semester and as a result my grades suffered. I don't mean to make excuses for my poor academic performance and I understand it’s my fault, but I would like to explain the circumstances as well as my great interest in the program.
It has been a long road over the past seventeen years, to get to where I am now. Choosing to go to school, you would have thought would have been a no-brainer. As a young adult I never really looked beyond the day I was in. I have been through many jobs in my life, I made it a career in changing careers. The jobs I took never felt like more than just a paycheck. Most of the jobs I had I would end up in a year or so hating going to work. I would literally dread going in or even thinking about having to work there. Then I found what I would call the "light going on" job where I felt different, I started working at the High school as a Substitute teacher. I came to the job because I was working as an LNA, I had changed my hours to only work on the weekends. The county changed their policies, I lost my insurance, so I went per diem. As an "on call" LNA I received no hours, I needed money and fast. Someone told me to be a sub at the school, no education needed and they are always looking for help. I worked a lot as a substitute, mostly for paraprofessionals in the high school. One of the case managers that I worked with a lot liked what she saw and encouraged me to go for the open position, I was interviewed before the interview if that makes any sense at all. I was working in the classroom with a "difficult" student, the director of special education just happen to be in the room that day observing the case manager. Well, I assume she liked what she saw as well, because when I
I am writing to you in the hopes to appeal the decision of my academic suspension. When I received the news of my suspension I was deeply saddened, but understood completely the circumstances under which the decision was made. My low GPA failed to meet the requirements of the University to remain an active student on campus, which as a result led to my temporary dismissal. In the beginning of my freshman year, I was very excited about coming to Howard University because I had fell in love with the school. Into my first year I took on 18 credit hours convinced that college would be similar to high school. My first semester felt extremely overwhelming, I thought that I could handle my classes, and I convinced myself that I did not need help but I had only proved by the end of that semester that I was wrong. I did not know how to study well, and I could rely on my “smarts” to get me through classes that were rigorous. I enrolled myself without counseling into Spanish 2, calculus 1, and Freshman composition and I struggled the entire way, my pride just would not let me admitted that I needed help. So I lied to myself, I told myself that it would get better or maybe just go away. It did not and after failing my final exams I would be faced with the damage I had done to my, academic career.
With this letter to you, I urge you to please hear me out and help me. I do not have the money to attend UCONN because of my family’s financial situation. The aid I received was a blessing and gave me the opportunity to follow my dreams and make my parents proud. It was the main driving factor for me going to UCONN as I pay for school myself. I had worked all summer and had planned to take whatever the difference was once financial aid was factored in and pay for it with my hard earned money, but now I will not be able to do that because of a miscommunication with my father and my mental illness. If I am granted financial aid, I will do whatever it takes to overcome
I am writing to you to appeal the Financial Aid Status I am currently placed under. Although you may not know me, if you look back at my grade history, this is not the student I am. I am a student who strives to work hard, and to do the ultimate best of my abilities. I usually beat myself up over homework and test grades. Throughout my career at Minot State University, my GPA never fell below a 3.70, I have been on the Dean’s/President’s Honor Roll since Fall of 2015. The only problem semester I have had previously was my first semester as a Freshman, and that was all about how I adjusted to college. After that first semester; I have only strived to reach my goals, and have worked tremendously
From writing this appeal I plea for a readmission for the upcoming 2016 spring semester to the University of Houston Downtown. The report of my suspension for a low GPA from this college has bought my total attention to understand that my education is not joke. I know it was because I saw my education as need than a want in my life. I know that I was immature from my past college experience furthermore, I was not able to obtain my education in a proper manner. This reality call for lacking on my GPA has opened my eyes to see I am nothing without knowledge. Moreover, I have embrace my failure by seeing that I did not grasp the opportunity in front of me with the best of my being. Now, that this flaw in my part has been unsealed; I have acknowledge the true priorities for myself and my future. I
I believe what changed for me this semester is my motivation, determination and understanding. In the need to focus on myself and I can no longer try to save her from her issues. I have been speaking with a counselor who is very supportive and helping me deal with my life’s circumstances. A teacher I had in the 6th grade who is like a mother to me. She and her husband are wonderful people in my life and always there for me. She and her husband payed for my books this semester. Im currently looking for another job and my plan is to hopefully be able to move out on my own by the end of this year. My goal and plan is to earn an associate degree in the next year. I need 22 more credits and I want to take full semesters this upcoming fall and spring so I can achieve this goal. If iam able to follow this plan then I will transfer and work extremely hard to graduate from a college or university with a bachelors and masters degree.
I am writing this letter of appeal not because I believe Brooklyn college has made a mistake in their acceptance, but because I feel the need to give my priority school one more shot. Growing up a resident in the neighborhood of Flatbush I cherished my atmosphere and surroundings. Giving back to my community was always my priority. It was what made me feel successful. My everyday life consisted of me going to my neighborhood origination and volunteering with whatever they needed help with that day because, it was something I enjoyed. When I got to high school I was exposed to all the clubs and extracurricular my school had to offer. Lots of the clubs caught my interest. I felt like lots of them could use my help and so, I joined them. I joined
I am ready to start over and focus on school like i know i can. This upcoming year will be totally different now that i know my family is ok and in stable condition, i can put all my focus into school like it was at first. If i am granted this appeal, this would be a huge blessing, not just for me but for my family. They won't have to worry about trying to put me through school i can do it on my own. If granted the appeal i would change my whole way of doing this as far as study hall and tutoring sessions. I'll make sure that this never happens again and make sure to stay focused on my goal of finishing school.
This cover letter shall serve as an expression of my desire to teach. As one with an advanced degree, I have sat in many classrooms and heard many lectures. I have been inspired by educators who have passion. The passion to educate, to provoke thought and

I lost my financial aid because my grades did not meet up to the Satisfactory Academic Progress that the school requires. What happened was, there were only two available options for the MATH 152 class during the Summer Quarter of 2015. I chose the night class because the morning class was taught by a teacher I didn't prefer. However, the night class was only two days a week for 3 hours straight. Because of my naivety, I assumed that I wouldn't have any problems with the set up. Around this time, however, was Ramadan, which suspended me from concentration within the class, heavily effecting my scores on tests. Besides this, my grandfather, whom I loved and cherished, had just passed away the month before, on May 17, 2015, requiring 40 days
To whom it may concern, I am writing this letter to address the decision on my application for County Prep High School. I disagree on the decision for me to not get accepted and I would like to request a file review. The way I see County Prep High School, is that it’s not just a school. It’s an opportunity for me to achieve success in the real world, to accomplish my dreams. I strongly believe that this school is the perfect option for me.
All the measures that are mentioned in the textbook are important. However, there a few of these measures that are not as important compared to the others listed. One of these measures involve the school mail.
The reason why I am writing this letter to you, is for you to understand why I believe I deserve an extra 10 points towards my semester grade average.I was doing very well when school first started, but more an more harder assignments keep coming right after another. I am not to good at English as it is an, when I ask for help I don't believe I get the kind of help I get from my other teachers when i don't understand something. When I want to or need to keep working on the assignment because I didn't understand it quite well I don't have enough time because it's on to the next and if I put the next assignment on hold I fall behind so much. I have also missed a lot of school due to me being very sick or family emergencies. I try not to miss
