You are eligible to appeal the outcome of your case if, the Conduct Officer found you responsible, or your case went to a hearing. Students who accepted responsibility and sanctions, during a conduct conference, are not able to appeal.
If you are eligible to appeal there should be instructions and a link to the on-line appeal form at the bottom of your outcome letter.
When you click on the link, you will be directed to answer four questions, which will help guide you through your appeal.
- Were you suspended, dismissed, or evicted from housing?
- Do you feel there was an error made in the processing or handling of your case that unfairly and materially impacted your outcome?
- Do you believe the Conduct Officer/Board should have found you not responsible based on the available information?
- Do you have new information to share that was not available at the time of your meeting/hearing?
If you answer yes to any of the above questions, you are prompted to specifically and thoroughly explain yourself. This is because it is unlikely you will meet with the Appellate Officer in person.
Your appeal is due five business days after your outcome letter is sent. Typically, appeals are processed by the Appellate Officer twice a month.
If the link does not work, or you have any questions, please contact the Office.
