Transfer applicants who have been denied admission and have new information to present may request an appeal in writing. Applicants must adhere to the following guidelines for submitting an appeal for transfer admission:

  • The appeal will only be accepted from the student, not from a parent or guardian.
  • The appeal must be submitted within 30 days of receiving the notification of the original decision.
  • The appeal must contain NEW information that was not included in the initial application. Examples of new information might include a new transcript if it has been determined that a professor submitted an inaccurate grade. Additional letters of recommendation are not considered new information.
  • The appeals process is not a re-review process of the existing applicant file. Appeals will not be considered for applicants who are not submitting new information.
  • The appeal should include an explanation of why the new information was not submitted originally.
  • The Transfer Admissions Committee will notify you of its decision in writing.

Appeals should be mailed to the following address:

Transfer Enrollment Committee
Office of the Registrar
Christopher Newport University
1 Avenue of the Arts
Newport News, VA 23606
