SAC Decision & Appeal

​​You will receive a SAC decision notification letter at your TCSPP email address within 10 business days of your hearing. A hearing outcome may include but is not limited to: 

 No Action

SAC determines that no action is required.

 Academic Development Plan (ADP)

An ADP is used to assist a student in the successful completion of a degree program. ADPs do not constitute disciplinary action; as such, they do not affect academic standing and cannot be appealed.​​

 Dismissal

Typically, a dismissal decision is effective immediately. Dismissal restricts your access to TCSPP facilities, suspend your access to your TCSPP-issued email account, restrict your access to other TCSPP electronic systems, and likely impact your grades for the term/semester. If you are in training, your department is contacted for guidance regarding an appropriate date for termination with clients. Typically, a student is given adequate time to close out training activities prior to dismissal.​

 Appealing a SAC Dismissal​

​​You have the right to appeal a SAC dismissal to the Responsible Leader of your home campus. You should submit your appeal as soon as possible and within 10 business days after being notified SAC's decision. If the Responsible Leader of your home campus has had direct involvement in your situation, the appeal may be considered by another Responsible Leader. In such cases, the Dean for Student Success will reassign the appeal.

The appeal process is not an opportunity to have the case reconsidered merely because of your dissatisfaction with the decision. Rather, all appeals must be based on one or more of the following:

  • New evidence
  • Evidence of improper procedure
  • New arguments that could not be provided at the time of the original hearing.
