Hey! What does it mean if an application has been withdrawn, can I appeal the decision or re apply?

So I applied to a college, where I received my admission decision as withdrawn, is being withdrawn a fancy way of saying you have been rejected?

If you didn't withdraw the application, and the college withdrew the application, without an explanation, that means that you didn't meet their criteria for being considered for admission. Sometimes colleges have various thresholds, like passing the interview process, getting certain scores for the SAT or ACT or other things.

It's doubtful that you will succeed in appealing their decision because if it was a private college, they don't have to abide by any any set rules with granting admission to anyone.

Why do you think your application was withdrawn? You didn't reveal that in your posted question.

Hi, thank you for asking your question! I agree with @CameronBameron in their response. You may not have met the criteria for admissions to their school or program, whether it was an academic or non-academic/logistical reason is unclear.
