Appeals Process

Appeals Procedures

In academic misconduct, substance use misconduct, and general misconduct cases, the designated university appellate body is the University Appeals Board. For more information about the board, see the Standard Operating Procedures for the University Appeals Board.

University Appeals Board Procedures

For discriminatory misconduct and student organization misconduct cases, the appeals procedures can be found within the respective case type’s standard operating procedures.

Appeal Forms

Students and faculty are asked to thoroughly read the applicable procedures and review the form before appeal submission. Be sure to gather relevant materials and draft responses to the form’s questions. Preparing this material in advance is important because you cannot save the form “in progress” and come back to it later. Submitting an incomplete form will delay the appeals process and may ultimately result in the denial of an appeal.
