Example of a successful appeal
On March 2, 2017, I had a baby 2 months earlier than my due date. I was in the hospital for one week and could not attend class. In addition, my baby was in neonatal intensive care until April 15, 2017. I spent all my time at hospital and by the time the baby came home, I could not catch up with the assignments I missed and had to withdraw .
I have recovered from the birth and my baby is healthy. My mom will watch the baby while I am in class or studying. In addition, I plan to visit ACE for help studying.
- Attached Documentation:
- A doctor's note confirming complications for me and my baby
- A copy of the hospital bill showing the dates of admission and release
