Appeal Information

Students may appeal decisions made by the Office of Admissions and Outreach that affect their admissions status at Cal Poly Pomona.  However, Cal Poly Pomona does not encourage students to submit appeals for consideration since decisions affecting admissions status are made after thorough review and all materials received.  If students do submit an appeal for consideration, the student takes the responsibility to submit all documentation required for appeal consideration by any appropriate deadline that may apply.  Students submitting appeals will be notified via written and electronic notification (Cal Poly Pomona applicants must keep their current e-mail address on file, as the university uses e-mail as the official means of communication) on their final appeal decisions, but are advised not to change their existing college or educational pursuits to wait for the appeal decision.

There are two types of appeals at Cal Poly Pomona:

1. DEADLINE NOT MET

 

 If a deadline has not been met, you must file a written appeal within 10 days of the date on the notification letter and provide required documents directly to the Office of Admissions and Outreach.  Please note that appeals will not be considered if they are not filed with the Office of Admissions and Outreach within 10 days of the date on the notification letter.  Consideration for appeals is based on extenuating circumstances and students are advised that appeals may not be accepted, regardless of circumstances.

Submit the following in ONE package and include Student Name and Bronco ID number on each sheet of material submitted:

2.  ADMISSION DECISION

  Cal Poly Pomona does not set aside space in our class for students who appeal admissions selection decisions.  Additionally, every application has been reviewed extensively.  Please note that appeals will not be considered if they are not filed with the Office of Admission and Outreach within 10 days of the date on the notification letter.  Consideration for appeals is based on extenuating circumstances and students are advised that appeals may not be accepted, regardless of circumstances.
