Undergraduate Admission Appeals

If an undergraduate student is not admitted through the Admissions Review Process, the student may file a formal admissions appeal through the Admission Committee. The Admission Committee, composed of faculty and staff, reviews undergraduate admissions appeals.

To appeal the admission decision, a formal Letter of Appeal should be addressed to the Admission Committee. The letter should cite any compelling circumstances that may have adversely impacted prior academic performance and should detail how the student's current situation will help the student achieve academic success in the future.

The appeal should be submitted within 30 days of the initial denial decision but no later than 30 days prior to the intended semester/term to enroll. The Letter of Appeal may be submitted by e-mail to admissions@utpb.edu or sent by mail to: Admission Committee, University of Texas Permian Basin, 4901 E University Blvd., Odessa, TX 79762.

The student will be notified approximately 14-21 days following the receipt of the Letter of Appeal. The decision of the Committee is final and shall be mailed to the address indicated on the original admission application. Applicants may appeal once, and decisions resulting from an appeal are final. Application fees are non-refundable regardless of the result of an appeal.
