PROMISE Scholarship Appeals Process - Renewal Students

(Cited from PROMISE Legislative Rule 9.6 – 9.8)

A student granted an initial PROMISE Scholarship may appeal a non-renewal of the award.  Any such appeal must be filed within fifteen days of notification to the student that he/she is not eligible for renewal of the award.  The appeal is to be filed with the person designated at the institution of higher education where he student is enrolled.  The appeal process at the institution shall be governed by an established procedure designated by the institution.

If the appeal of the non-renewal is denied by the institution the student may appeal that decision to the Executive Director of the PROMISE Scholarship Program.  The appeal must be filed within fifteen days of notification to the student of denial of the institutional appeal and shall be heard in the same manner as appeals of denials of initial awards.

If a student with a PROMISE Scholarship is not eligible for renewal of the award because of a failure to maintain academic progress they may not utilize the procedure set out herein to challenge any grade assigned them.  Challenges to grades must be brought under established institutional procedures for grade appeals.  The process set out above may only be utilized to challenge the application of the eligibility requirements to the grade or grades assigned.  If a student is successful on a grade appeal, and the changing of the grade makes them eligible once again for renewal, they may petition the PROMISE Board for a renewal of the award retroactively.
