Students have five (5) business days from the date of their decision letter to appeal the decision of either the Hearing Administrator or the Student Conduct Board. Appeals must be made in writing and must successfully meet one of the following criteria:

  • Procedural Error: The student asserts a procedural error impaired his or her right to a fair opportunity to be heard
  • New Information: Information has arisen that could not reasonably have been made available during the original hearing and may have been sufficient to alter the original Student Conduct Board/Hearing Administrator’s decision
  • Review of Sanctions: The student requests a review of the imposed sanction(s), citing extraordinary circumstances

The Notice of Appeal Form is available here.

Students appealing the decision of the Student Conduct Board may listen to the audiorecording of the hearing in the Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution. The recording may not be removed from the office.

Please refer to the Code of Student Conduct for a more detailed explanation of the appeals process.
