Appeal of Non-Academic Sanctions

A student who disputes the imposed sanction may request a hearing before a Student Appeals Committee. The student must provide a written notice outlining the grounds for appeal to the Dean of Student Services within three (3) business days from the date he or she is informed of the penalty. The Dean shall refer the matter to the Student Appeals Committee and provide a report detailing the nature of the alleged misconduct and the relevant facts revealed during the investigation. The accused student will remain in good standing and be permitted to attend classes throughout the appeal process unless the presence of the accused poses an immediate or imminent threat to the safety and well-being of the campus community. If a student disagrees with the decision of the committee, he or she may appeal to the President following the process described below.
