Appeals

Appeals

The primary issue in a review of a disciplinary decision is whether University policy, procedures, and practices have been properly applied, not whether a student agrees or disagrees with the decision.

A student may submit an appeal if it is based on at least one of the following three reasons:

  1. Substantial new evidence exists, which, if heard, would likely change the outcome of the case.
  2. The original hearing procedures were substantially flawed and therefore unfair.
  3. The sanction is highly inconsistent with previous sanctions given for the same violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

The student may submit an  appeal through a link in their decision email, documenting the reason(s) for appeal. Appeals must be received by the Office of Student Affairs no later than forty-eight hours or two working days from the date of receipt of the email. Only appeals from the accused student will be considered. If more than one student is involved in the incident, each must file a separate appeal.

Appeal of decisions made by a judicial officer will be reviewed in a timely manner by the Director of Student Affairs. The finding will be communicated in writing to the student. In cases involving probation, suspension or expulsion, the incident will automatically be forwarded to the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs. Decisions made by the appropriate appellate authority are binding and no additional appeals will be considered.
