This letter should state your request to reverse the initial decision made on your application for admission, and detail items you are including for consideration with your appeal.
Recommended

This includes any new college-level entry exam scores (e.g., SAT), college placement exam scores (e.g., THEA), or any college-level courses that are documented on an official transcript.

Rèsumè
It is important for us to have a clear picture of you as both a person and a student. Your rèsumè should include all extracurricular activities you participated in during your high school career, leadership positions (e.g., Vice President of Student Council), honors or awards received - both personal and team, and any community service/work experience.
Recommended Personal statement
A personal statement is a great way to share information that cannot be covered within an application or resume. When writing a personal statement, you should include any extenuating circumstances or hardships you have faced that have had a direct effect on your education.
Recommended Letters of recommendation
Letters of recommendation allow us to see you and your abilities from another's point of view.

What kind of things will I need to submit as part of my appeal?
The items you will be asked to submit will vary depending on your situation (see below for a list of commonly requested items). Again, we ask that you please contact an Admissions Counselor so that they can help you determine which items to submit and assist you in building a customized appeal. Some of the items requested most often include:

Can I meet with the committee in person?
No, the review process is completely confidential. However, you are more than welcome to make an appointment with one of our Admissions Counselors to discuss your appeal.

Is there a limit on the number of appeals I can submit? 
No, there is no set limit on the number of appeals you can submit. However, each new appeal must contain newacademic credentials that demonstrate your ability to be academically successful.

How soon will I get a decision?
The time it takes the UAC to review your appeal is contingent upon how many other appeals are currently being reviewed at that time. However, we try to process them as quickly as possible to ensure a timely response.

How will I be notified once a decision is made on my appeal?
A representative with the Office of Recruitment and Admissions will contact you on the status of your appeal either by phone or email.

Still have questions?
If you still have questions about the appeal process, please contact the Office of Recruitment and Admissions by email at admiss@tamucc.edu.
