Request for Appeal

 Section B.9 in Honor Code and Procedures: The accused student may appeal the hearing officer’s decision regarding responsibility. Appeals must be submitted to the hearing officer in writing within five business days of the date of the decision letter.

The criteria for the appeal review is limited to:

  1. Procedural deficiencies in the established hearing process.

  2. The emergence of substantive new evidence which was not available at the time of the hearing

​It is necessary to explain on this form how the case meets the criteria for an appeal. It should be noted that an appeal may not be based on discontent with the severity of the sanction imposed by the Honor Code Hearing Panel.

A granted appeal will result in the meeting of the Honor Code Appeals Board and they will review the record of the case alone. The student and reporting party are not allowed to attend the meeting. The Appeals Board has the authority to let the decision of the Hearing Panel stand, remand the case to the Hearing Panel, reverse the Hearing Panel decision, or modify the sanction(s). Modification of the Hearing Panel’s decisions must be reached by a majority decision.

All requests for appeal must be filed in writing within five business days, excluding days the Honor Code Office is closed, of the date of the decision letter.

You will receive written notice of any decision in regard to your appeal.
