Students who do not supply the necessary documentation or do not meet the threshold for a 'WE' will receive notification of denial via their UNC Charlotte email account. A student can appeal a denial of a request to be withdrawn due to extenuating circumstances to the Provost. The appeal must be submitted within one calendar year of the date of the initial denial of the request. The decision by the Provost is final. 

An appeal of a denial of a request to be withdrawn due to extenuating circumstances must be based on one or more of the following criteria:

Discrimination based on age, gender, race, color, national origin, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression;
Failure to follow published written University procedures for a withdrawal due to extenuating circumstances; or
New information that was not available to the student at the time of the original request form. An appeal based on new information must first be sent to the original reviewer for consideration. If the original reviewer renders a denial decision after taking the new information into consideration, the student can then submit an appeal to the Provost.  New information will not be considered by the original reviewer if it was not submitted within one calendar year of the date of the initial denial of the request. (Note: Medical Documentation must come from a current, treating physician. Second opinions do not qualify. Students must be able to show why the medical information was not available at the original request.)

A written narrative and request for an appeal based on the above-listed appeal criteria can be submitted to the Provost c/o Ms. Juandra Burris, Business Officer at jdburris@uncc.edu.
