TRENDING IN THE ADVISER ONLINE COMMUNITY

Here are some current discussions in the community:
How do you handle students who don’t include required information on the candidate form and then when they don’t get selected, they say that they did have it, they just forgot to include it/get it signed/provide documentation? Do you allow them to appeal and then provide the documentation? What circumstances do you allow for an appeal? If you have an appeals process, could you share it?

Dear fellow advisers: I received an email from the parent of a senior who is on home and hospital leave. He hasn’t had a chance to complete his service hours due to illness. Can he still walk with the stole, and be considered a full member with an extension into the summer to complete his service hours? Have any of you had this situation? Please advise! Thanks
