Admissions Denials

Basis for Denials

  1. Suspension/Expulsion from another Educational Entity

If the College suspends or expels a student for non-academic disciplinary purposes, the College shall record the suspension or expulsion in the student's educational record.  Upon receipt of a written request signed by the student and subject to all applicable privacy laws, the College shall, in accordance with the student's request, inform other colleges and universities of the term and circumstances of the student's non-academic disciplinary suspension or expulsion, if any.  The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant during any period of time that the applicant is under a period of suspension or expulsion from another educational entity for non-academic disciplinary reasons.

2. Safety Concern

The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant if it is necessary to protect the safety of the applicant or other individuals.  When making a safety determination, the College may refuse admission to an applicant when there is an articulable, imminent and significant threat to the applicant or other individuals.  When refusing admission based on safety concerns, the appropriate Dean or AVP shall document:

  • Detailed facts supporting the rationale for denying admission;
  • The time period within which the refusal to admit shall be applicable and the supporting rationale for the designated time period; and
  • The conditions upon which the application that is refused would be eligible to be admitted.

3. Residency for Distance Learning

  • The College is not authorized to provide distance learning courses outside of North Carolina unless state authorization has been granted from the state in which the applicant resides.  State authorization requires colleges to seek and secure authorization to offer instruction in that state. 
  • Admission of applicants residing outside of North Carolina to an on-line degree, diploma, certificate program or individual on-line courses offered by the College is dependent on the College’s ability to secure authorization from the applicant’s state of residence. 
  • State authorization does not affect the cost of attending the College.  Tuition requirements, including those for out-of-state students, still apply.  This requirement does not apply to non-credit continuing education courses. 

4. Undocumented Immigrants

An undocumented immigrant is any immigrant who is not lawfully present in the United States.  The College shall not admit undocumented immigrants unless all of the following conditions apply:

  • The undocumented immigrant attended and graduated from a United States public high school, private high school or home school that operates in compliance with State or local law.  
  • The undocumented immigrant must comply with all federal and state laws concerning financial aid.  
  • The individual shall not be considered a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes and must be charged out-of-state tuition regardless of whether the individual resides in North Carolina.   
  • When considering whether to admit the individual into a specific program of study, the College shall take into account that federal law prohibits states from granting professional licenses to undocumented immigrants. 
  • Students lawfully present in the United States shall have priority over any undocumented immigrant in any class or program of study when capacity limitations exist. 
  • An admitted undocumented student will not be permitted to register for a class or program of study or be placed on a waiting list until the conclusion of the last published registration date for the term.  


The College reserves the right to refuse readmission to a former student who has unsettled financial obligations at the College or who has not complied with previous disciplinary requirements.

Appeal for Admissions Denials

If an applicant is denied admissions to the College for any of the reasons specified in Section II(A)(1)-(7), within five (5) business days following the receipt of the reasons specifying the denial, the applicant may file a written appeal with the Vice President for a reconsideration.  The written appeal shall contain the applicant’s reasons why he/she should be admitted and shall include any supporting documentation.  The Vice President shall also meet with the applicant and provide the applicant an opportunity to respond.  Within ten (10) calendar days from receipt of the applicant’s written appeal, the Vice President shall make his/her determination and provide the applicant with a written response.

If the applicant does not agree with the Vice President’s determination, within five (5) business days following the receipt of the Vice President’s determination, the applicant may file a written appeal with the President.  The President shall conduct an “on the record review” and shall make a determination within ten (10) calendar days after receipt of the applicant’s written appeal.  The President’s decision is final.
