Appeal of Denial

The Appeal of Denial meeting only takes please once a semester. The CAPS Committee holds a meeting once in the Fall semester, and once in the Spring semester.

The Appeal of Denial process is a lot like the Readmission process. It differs from the Readmission process in that the Committee asks that you to thoroughly explain your plan of action in your personal statement.

If readmitted to York, how will you get your GPA above 2.0 and how do you plan to keep your GPA above 2.0? 

The next Appeal of Denial meeting will not take place until sometime around November 2022. However, we do encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
