Appealing your admission decision

Applicants denied admission to Fort Lewis College can use the Admission Appeal form to 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. 

The admission appeal process

To appeal, the student must use the Submit Written Statement form to 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.

What to expect after you've submitted your appeal

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.
