Academic Review & Appeal Committee
The Academic Review & Appeal Committee (ARAC) at Medgar Evers College is tasked with the review and deliberation of all student petitions for reinstatement to the College, who are not in good academic standing and subsequently are ineligible to continue with their academic degree pursuits at MEC. In order to promote a thorough and holistic evaluation of all student petitions, ARAC is comprised of faculty members representing each of our academic schools, staff members from each academic advising unit, as well as the Financial Aid, Admissions and Registrar offices. The Committee meets at least twice during the fall and spring semesters.
All student petitions for reinstatement and supporting documentation must be submitted as hard copies to the designated offices below:
Students under 30 credits
Students with 30+ credits
Any issues or concerns regarding the petition for reinstatement process may be directed to the attention of the ARAC Chair email: ARAC@ mec.cuny.edu.
