CI reviews all applications and transcripts for CSU eligibility. If after review of all submitted documents a student is deemed not admissible, the student can elect to appeal the decision. Students will have 15 business days from date of denial of admission notification to submit an appeal. In addition, students can only submit one appeal per academic term.

The student must complete the following steps:

1. Download and complete the form appropriate for the appeal.

Request for Extension on Completion of Admission Requirements or Re-Review of file due to additional information.

This form is to be used if you have additional information that may make you admissible or are requesting more time to complete the admission requirements (i.e. request to use summer 2015 for fall 2015 admissions).  Students who are approved through this process will not be able to register for classes until official proof of completion of admission requirements is verified.

Admission Exception Form (for students who will not meet the minimum CSU Admission requirements)

This form is available to students who have been denied and will not meet the admission requirements and to students who were provisionally admitted to CI, but will no longer meet the admission requirements or whose admission has been rescinded.  The committee to review these appeals will not be reviewed until mid-June for Fall 2015 admissions and December for Spring 2016 admissions.
