Typically, a dismissal decision is effective immediately. Dismissal restricts your access to TCSPP
facilities, suspends your
access to your TCSPP-issued email account, restricts your access to other TCSPP
electronic systems, and likely impacts your grades for the term/semester. If you are engaged 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.
You have the right to appeal SAC dismissal to the Responsible Leader of your home campus. You must submit your appeal as soon as possible and within 10 business days after being notified SAC's decision. Responsible Leader information is posted here.
If the Responsible Leader of your home campus has had direct involvement with your referral, 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 your dismissal reconsidered merely because of your dissatisfaction with the decision. Rather, all appeals must be based on one or more of the following:
The written appeal must include:
The Responsible Leader will render a decision as soon as possible and within 10 business days after receipt of the appeal.
If the Responsible Leader denies the appeal, the dismissal will stand as final. This decision may not be appealed. If the Responsible Leader grants the appeal, the case will be remanded to SAC for another hearing. This hearing must occur as soon as possible and within 10 business days after the Responsible Leader issues their decision. The hearing will be limited to the information supporting the granting of the appeal.
