Academic Appeals Committee:
I am writing this letter as a petition for academic probation for Fall term, 1984. In asking permission for the probationary period, I would like to explain how I plan to better my academic standing in the future.
First, I will quit all part-time employment; over the past three terms I have held 2-3 jobs each quarter off campus. In so doing I will allow myself much more study time.
Secondly, I plan to cut my course load from the previously registered 20 hours to a maximum of 15 hours, if granted academic probation. I believe that would be a more realistic approach to my studies and a much easier goal to attain.
In closing, I regret no having completed the required 36 hours in the past three terms. But, I would like to petition the committee for an academic probationary period, in order that I might apply myself and return to good standing academically in the near future. Thank you for your time and interest.
