How to File an Appeal

If you feel that you had a special circumstance within the last 12 months that prevented you from making SAP, you can file an appeal. Some examples of special circumstances are the death of a close friend or family member, hospitalization or serious illness, legal issues, or other events of that magnitude over which you had no control. Please note that if your reason for filing an appeal is not deemed a special circumstance, your appeal will be automatically denied. The decision of the appeal committee is final.

  1. Go to the webpage.
  2. Click on the SAP Appeal tab.
  3. Fill out the form in its entirety. Incomplete forms will not be processed.
  4. Once your appeal is under review, your SAP status in Ramport will show “Appeal in Review”.
  5. Please allow at least ten business days from the time your appeal is received for the committee to review your appeal.
  6. An email notification will be sent once a decision has been determined.
