Appeals Process

Student Conduct Appeals

Following the receipt of an adverse action or sanction, the student has seven (7) days to appeal the decision. The appeal is reviewed by the Board or appropriate academic leadership; individuals who review the appeal shall not have participated in the initial review of student misconduct.

If new factual evidence arises, the Board may consider a second review. The maximum appeal timeline is 12 months from the date of the decision; however, the university reserves the right to adjust the timeline based on the circumstances of the case.
