Appeals of Admissions Decision

Applicants denied admission to Albany State University’s Graduate School may appeal the decision but only on the grounds that the denial was based on an inaccurate evaluation of minimum program requirements or a violation of Albany State University’s Equal Opportunity Statement listed below. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the graduate school.

Appeals of graduate school admission decisions must be in writing, state specifically the grounds for the appeal, be accompanied by supporting documentation, and be directed and delivered to Albany State University’s Graduate School. Upon receipt of the appeal, the Graduate School will forward the applicant's file and appeal documents to the Appeals Committee of the Graduate Council, and, after the proceedings, communicate the decision to the applicant. Students who submit an appeal will not be considered for the semester in which they were denied; instead, they will be considered for the following semester.
