Students who have been denied for internal transfer and wish to appeal the decision may request an appeal from the internal transfer appeals committee. The appeal process requires students to explain why their situation warrants approval, even though they did not meet the necessary requirements to be considered or accepted for an internal transfer. This process can only happen after a student has submitted an application and that application has been denied.
Appeal Reason and Supporting Documentation
The appeal form will allow students to submit appropriate documentation to support the claims of the appeal. Depending on the circumstances of the appeal, you may need/want to submit a plan of study signed by your advisor, an email from a financial aid counselor, academic advisor, department chair, etc., a copy of your driver's license to verify a new address, or any other documentation to indicate the reasons for your appeal. Typical reasons a student may be requesting an appeal include, but are not limited to:
- Meeting maximum hours for financial aid eligibility in associate degree program
- Currently paying the higher tuition rates at the bachelor's level
- Needing registration in upper level courses (3000 & 4000 Level)
- A change in housing situation (live closer to another UNG campus)
- Advisor recommendations based on educational/career goals
Decisions and Planning Ahead
The appeals committee will review requests and notify the student of their decision through UNG email. Students wishing to appeal the decision on their internal transfer application are encouraged to plan for the next semester at their current degree level and home campus by registering for those courses during early registration periods. Appeals decisions are not guaranteed to be made and processed before early registration each term and students should plan accordingly to avoid a gap in enrollment or unfavorable course availability.
Students who have been denied for an internal transfer will receive an email to their UNG email account with the official notification of the denial decision. The link to complete an appeal form will be located in that email and students will need to log-in with their UNG credentials to be able to submit this form. Students who need to have the email re-sent to them, should contact Vincent Prior at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-717-2229.
Due to campus capacity, we are no longer accepting summer or fall 2017 applications for the Dahlonega and Oconee Campuses.
Spring – October 1
Summer and Fall – March 1
Applications received after the deadline will only be reviewed for acceptance if it is possible to accommodate the internal transfer request and late applications may not be processed in time for early registration. Campus capacity, course availability, and reasons for internal transfer may impact ability to accommodate late applications.
The term "transition" is being phased out and will now be referred to as "internal transfer". This website is currently being updated to reflect those changes.
