PURPOSE : The Extenuating Circumstances Admissions and Residency Appeals Committee determines and maintains a written record of its deliberations whether an applicant’s high school GPA, ACT scores, and other pertinent data justify admitting someone who does not meet regular admissions criteria. The Committee also hears appeals of residency classifications determined by the Director of Admissions on the basis of Board of Trustees guidelines and forwards the recommendations to the Chancellor for approval.
COMPOSITION : Director of Admissions, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or designee, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Director of Business Affairs, and three (3) faculty members chosen by the Administrative Committee on Committees. Each faculty member will serve a three‑year term with one rotating off each year. The Director of Admissions will serve as chair and secretary of the Committee.
