THE STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
Article V. Academic Integrity
Section H. Appeals
- Only students may appeal the decision of the Academic Grievance Committee for cases involving alleged violations of the academic integrity policy. The appeal can only be based on procedural violations and must be submitted within five (5) University working days from the date on which the student was notified of the hearing panel’s decision. The request for an appeal is submitted in writing to the Judicial Chair.
- The Judicial Chair will forward the written appeal to the Academic Senate Executive Committee within two (2) University working days.
(a) If the Academic Senate Executive Committee determines that no procedural violations occurred, or that any procedural violations were minor and did not affect the original hearing panel’s decision, the original hearing panel’s decision is upheld and the case is closed.
(b) If the Academic Senate Executive Committee determines that procedural violations may have occurred and were potentially substantive enough to have affected the hearing panel’s decision, the case will be referred to a three-person appellate hearing panel consisting of one (1) student and two (2) faculty members. This appellate hearing will take place within twelve (12) University working days of receipt of the written appeal.
- Appellate Hearing Panel
(a) No member of the appellate hearing panel will hear a case directly affecting themselves.
(b) Prior to the appellate hearing, members of the appellate hearing panel shall review all relevant documents.
(c) The chair of the appellate hearing panel shall inform both parties of the decision as soon as reasonably possible. A written statement of the decision shall be prepared and signed by the chair of the appellate hearing panel, forwarded to the student, faculty member, Office of Student Conduct, and the Office of the Provost within five (5) University working days of the decision via University email.
(d) A file of all pertinent documents for all appeals shall be kept by the Office of Student Conduct and/or the Office of the Provost.
(e) The decision reached by the appellate hearing panel is final and may not be appealed.
- At the discretion of the chair of the appellate hearing panel, the timeline under the appeal process may be extended.
- If the appeal results in a grade change, the grade change form should be completed by the faculty member and signed by the respective chairperson and/or dean within three (3) University working days. If the faculty member, chairperson, and/or dean refuse to sign the grade change form, then the Provost will do so.
