SPAC Reentry Appeal

Re-entry Without Time Off

The results of your most recent academic semester have unfortunately placed you in dropped status, which means that you are not eligible to attend the University for either one semester or one year. Any exceptions need to be granted by the CALS Scholastic Policies and Actions Committee (SPAC). In order to request continuing without time off, please complete the form below.

Although it is not mandatory, you will have the ability to present your appeal personally to the committee (strongly recommended), and our office will contact you to schedule a time slot once we receive your completed form. If you are not able to appear in front of the committee, options exist for calling in on Skype or by phone. Otherwise, the committee will make a decision based on submitted materials. You have the ability to submit additional documentation to support your appeal, including letters of support from your advisors, instructors, faculty, or other campus partners. Those additional materials can be sent to academicaffairs@cals.wisc.edu or brought in-person to the CALS Academic Affairs office in 116 Ag Hall. All forms and supporting documentation must be submitted by the deadline in order to appeal.

It is strongly encouraged that you work with your advisor when completing this form.  If you have any questions please contact us at academicaffairs@cals.wisc.edu or (608) 262-3003.
