Conduct Appeals

A student may appeal the conduct decision and/or sanction by requesting a hearing by the appeals committee in writing within five days of receipt of the sanction letter. The dean of student services will convene the appeals committee.

The only grounds for appeal are the following:

  1. A procedural or substantive error occurred that significantly impacted the outcome of the hearing.
  2. To consider new evidence, unavailable during the original hearing or investigation that could substantially impact the original finding or sanction. A summary of this new evidence and it potential impact must be included.
  3. The sanctions imposed are substantially disproportionate to the severity of the violation.
