If you are in danger of administrative withdrawal, Relay may contact your school and/or sponsoring organizations and/or teacher prep program affiliation to notify them and enlist their help in supporting you.

The campus dean will review all appeals with the senior dean, student affairs and may include a panel of at least two campus deans when necessary.
