Academic Appeals

The KCU Academic Appeals Committee is comprised of KCU faculty from various departments across campus and recommends resolution to cases presented in written form (i.e., this online form) by students. It is expected that reasonable attempts have been made to achieve resolution to your issue with the professor and dean of the school prior to involving the Academic Appeals Committee. Meetings with the committee are generally not required, but may be necessary in some instances; if a meeting is required you will be contacted by the committee. If you have questions about the appeals process, please contact the Academic Office at 606-474-3253, or visit the office in Lusby Center.

If your appeal is related to class attendance, please note that you should carefully review the attendance policy contained in the Student Handbook prior to submitting an appeal. If you have documentation to support absences, please indicate so in the form (i.e., “doctor’s note”) and immediately direct a copy of the document(s) to Dr. Marvin Elliott, KCU Box 2063 or email melliott@kcu.edu.

If you are appealing for reinstatement because of absences that you must list ALL of your absences, with dates, including any “unexcused” ones.

If your appeal is related to another academic issue, please attempt to capture the reason for the appeal in as brief and succinct a manner as possible, while including details pertinent to understanding the context and extent of the matter in question.

All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.

Prepared for the World

“KCU was more than a University, it was also a home for me. Professors didn’t just worry about my grades, but
they knew about my life, provided counsel, encouraged me, and pushed me to grow. I felt that my education for
ministry was amazing and really helped prepare me for ministry. A lot of my spiritual mentors have come out of
KCU and also some lifelong friendships with fellow students. KCU might not be the biggest school, but it has one
of the biggest hearts.”

Cady Wurtz, Class of 2017 Graduate School
