General Student Conduct Appeals
To appeal, you must submit this form within 14 calendar days of the official Decision Letter email.
You may appeal the outcome of your case under one or more of the following bases:
- To determine if the administrative conference was conducted fairly and/or in line with required procedures.
- To determine whether the decision reached was based on important and relevant information and that the information was sufficient to establish, by a preponderance of the evidence, that a violation of the Student Conduct Code occurred.
- To determine whether the sanctions (Action Plan) were commensurate for the violation and individual student circumstance.
- To determine if new information, that was not available at the time of the administrative conference, is sufficient to alter a decision
Important to Know
- An accused student who does not attend the administrative conference may only appeal on the basis that they did not receive Notice and should provide documentation to support that claim.
- Information withheld from the administrative conference is not considered to be new information.
- Faculty who wish to appeal academic misconduct decisions should also use this form and attach relevant documentation.
- The Appeals Board does not re-hear cases. The appeal is limited to the case record and the documentation submitted within the appeal.
For more information about the appeals process and the University Appeals Board, please refer to the Student Conduct Code.
