When the Office of the Registrar dismisses a student on behalf of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, the student will receive an official letter from the Office of the Registrar which will be delivered to the student’s official SGU e-mail address. The student then has the option to withdraw from SGS within five days of receipt of the letter of dismissal. If the student chooses not to withdraw, he/she may decline to respond to the letter of dismissal or, within five days of receipt of the letter of dismissal, submit an appeal to CAPPS by email. The dismissal letter will contain specific instructions that the student must follow for their appeal to be considered. After review of the appeal, CAPPS will communicate its decision to the student, by email, within 10 days of receiving the appeal.

Students who are dismissed by the Office of the Registrar on behalf of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, will be placed on the inactive status of “Dismissal Pending” by the Office of the Registrar, during the period provided for the student to decide whether to withdraw, appeal, or decline to respond to the letter of dismissal. During this time the student cannot register for any academic activities.

Students who choose to withdraw will have their status changed to “Withdrawn” by the Office of the Registrar.

Students who choose to appeal their dismissal to CAPPS will be placed on the inactive status of “Appeal Pending” by the Office of the Registrar, until CAPPS makes a decision on the appeal. During this time, the student cannot register for any academic activities.
