CSD Academic Appeal Policy and Procedures

  1. According to the Baylor Catalog: Students who believe they have individual circumstances warranting an exception to these grade minimums and failure policies may appeal to the department chair.
  2. A student who wishes to appeal must fill out this form and submit the appeal to the CSD Department during the time-frame specified at the bottom of your notification letter. The appeal will be reviewed by the CSD Chair and/or Appeals Committee and you will be notified of the result by email.
