To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to appeal my Academic dismissal from the University of Windsor, I was not surprised but very disappointed; I was disappointed in myself because I know that I could have achieved much better results. I would like to urge you to reinstate me for next year I admit, I had a very difficult time this semester, and my grades suffered as result, I don’t mean to make any excuses for my poor academic performance but I would like to explain the circumstances, I knew that registering for ten courses this year would be difficult to handle and I thought I could handle it, and I still believe I could handle it but when I was on the basketball team the workload became a lot and I then took up a job to help pay for my living. I do not have OSAP for school, so I had to get a job to help me financially. My parents and I pay everything. My Little sister also become ill and I went home for the last two weeks of march and a few days of April to help her, I was going back and forth home to help my mom because my dad is not in the country he is working overseas, so I was going back and forth between Brampton and Windsor to help her which was around the time of my final exams, we went to the hospital April 17th for my sister because it got worse, which gave me little time to study for my exams. I understand that this is still no excuse for my low GPA and will work extremely hard if reinstated back into the school. I love the University of Windsor, I have many family members and friends that have come to this school and told me good things about it, and it would mean a lot to graduate from this school. If I am reinstated I will focus much better on schoolwork, manage my time more wisely, I have also decided to cut out the extra circular activates and focus more on my studies. I have also decided to live with some family member’s in Windsor so I do not have to worry about living expenses and not have to juggle too much stuff and focus on school. My little sister has also gotten well and my father is back so I wont have to come back home to help my mom as regularly as I did last year. Please understand that my low GPA that led to my dismissal does not indicate that I am a bad student, who does not work hard, I am a very hardworking student who had a very bad year and if given a second chance will improve greatly in my academic’s, nothing is more important to me than graduating and getting my diploma and focusing on my school work. I hope you will give me a second chance to prove myself, thank you for considering this appeal.
