Lee Honors College Dismissal Appeal Form

You were informed in your honors college audit that you have failed to meet one or more honors college requirements.

Because you have not completed these requirements in the specified time frame, you have been dismissed from the Lee Honors College. Please note that this dismissal applies ONLY to your membership in the Lee Honors College and does not affect your standing as a Western Michigan University student.

You may appeal this decision and request readmission to the Lee Honors College. Your admission and audit letters specifically state the requirement(s) you have failed to achieve in order to remain in good standing with the college. For information about general honors college requirements, visit the requirements page of our website.

The appeal process is an opportunity for you to present your reason(s) for failing to maintain good standing in the honors college, together with your plans for maintaining good standing in the future. Your appeal should not merely be a statement of good intentions.
