Academic Appeal Letter Requirements

It is important that students who have been suspended from Lindenwood University take the requirement to write a letter of appeal seriously. This letter should professionally, sincerely, and thoughtfully written.

Your letter must be typed. It must use a business format and academic tone, complete with correct grammar. Under no circumstances may you use a cell phone to compose your letter.

The first section of the letter should include your personal information: your official name, LU identification number, mailing address, telephone number, email address, program or major, year in college or graduate school, and advisor’s name.

The second section should include a detailed summary of the events that led to your suspension. Please explain the situation from your point of view as completely as you feel comfortable. If supporting evidence, such as medical documentation, is available, mention that evidence here and attach copies of it to the letter.

The third section is the most important and will be carefully considered by the review committee. In this section, you should outline the specific steps you will take to successfully complete your course of study. Instead of saying, “I will work harder,” you might say, “I will work with tutors for two hours each week and email my professors for assistance and clarification before major assignments.”

The appeal letter and any supporting documents may be delivered in one of three ways: US mail, email, or personal delivery. Please note that email is strongly preferred by the review committee. When an appeal is received by email, a receipt will be sent within one business day. All appeal responses will be sent first by email, with a hard copy follow-up by US mail within a few days.
