Academic Records Appeal

An Academic Records Appeal is a request from a student (enrolled or non-enrolled) to change a part of their academic records at Texas A&M University-Texarkana as a result of an extenuating circumstance.  

This could be an appeal to have a class removed permanently from the academic record, a class to be dropped or a semester of classes to be withdrawn after the semester is completed, a refund of tuition/fees for a specific semester, or any other changes to a student’s academic record.

Please note: this process should not be used to appeal for a grade change.  Grade appeals should start with the instructor of the course or the dean of the college if the instructor is no longer with the university.

Any student wishing to file an Academic Records Appeal must:

  • read the appeal guidelines
  • complete the appeal form
  • sign the Academic Records Appeal Acknowledgment Form (page 5 of the appeal guidelines)
  • submit a written statement detailing the events that occurred which prevented them from meeting the deadlines in the specified semester

The Academic Records Appeal should be submitted to the Registrar's Office using any of the options below:


Texas A&M University- Texarkana
Registrar’s Office
7101 University Ave.
University Center, Suite 260.
Texarkana, TX 75503
