All appeals are academic proceedings of the RVU PA Program. All appeals must be submitted in writing to the appropriate appeal officer and must be submitted within the designated period for the appeal. Students will have an opportunity to present evidence to support their appeal and may be asked to appear before the SAPC or the Provost as part of the appeals review process. If this occurs, the student will be permitted to bring an advocate, but the advocate may not speak on behalf of the student. Legal representation is prohibited at academic proceedings. Actions by the Provost regarding readmission are not subject to reconsideration or appeal.
