Appealing your Admission Decision

Students denied admission can submit an appeal to the Admission Appeals Committee for reconsideration of the original admission decision.

Students must present new and compelling evidence as to why they are a good candidate for John Jay and not simply repeat information that was presented in the application. Students are advised to accept a seat at a college that has already offered them admission while their appeal is under review.

All appeal decisions are final.
