Sample Letter Of Dismissal

Good Essays
Yesterday I received a letter of dismissal from DePaul school of nursing. I am aware that my grades have been low for the last two semesters in which I take full responsibility. I write this appeal letter to explain the cause and ask you to please consider reinstating me.
I wish to state that my poor grades are not due to low ability or not being able to retain the material. Neither was it procrastination to study. Instead, my grades have suffered because I have been trying to juggle between school, work, being a single mother, and family issues.

I had never been so proud of myself. Being a single mother, many people discourage me and tell me how hard it will to obtain another degree. I know with a lot of hard work and dedication I will be able to successfully finish this program. DePaul University is a great school and I take pride in telling people I am a student here. Graduating with a degree from DePaul is my top priority and will make me the first person in my family to graduate with a master’s degree. My children are looking up to me and I know that I have to show them that they can do anything they set their mind to. Please understand that my low GPA that led to me letter of dismissal does not indicate I am not fit for this program, but has outlined some very unfortunate events that has happened to me and effected my grades. I apologize for my poor performance and I am requesting that you grant me with the opportunity to prove my worth. I assure you that I will not let you down. The letter for dismissal has been a huge wake up for me and if reinstated I will never put myself in this predicament again. As stated in this letter, I have been put through a lot of hardship but, I will leave my past in the past and only look forward from here on out. If I am reinstated, my motivation to succeed will be at a level that can push me to my limits and beyond. If I am reinstated, I will have the upmost gratitude for another chance as I know they don’t come
