Applicants denied admission to Fort Lewis College can request a reevaluation of their application through an appeal.
Generally, applicants appeal if they have additional information about their academic preparation and ability to be successful in college-level courses that they believe were not considered adequately through the usual application review process or that an error occurred in that review.
To appeal, the student must submit a written statement requesting reconsideration of their application for admission, including information regarding their academic experience, any circumstances they believe would be necessary for the admission committee to be aware of, and any additional evidence of their academic preparation.
A letter of appeal must be typed and not longer than three pages.
We suggest you share more about your educational journey to provide context to any disruptions, hardships, or barriers that may have affected your academic record that might not have been clear in your original application.
Your letter of appeal and supplemental documentation must be postmarked by the deadline or emailed or delivered in person by the deadline.
Appeal requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and the applicant will be notified by email of the committee's final decision within four weeks.
Appeal Committee decisions are final. Students are welcome to apply for a future term, and previous admission decisions will not be considered part of a new application.
