Appeals for Academic Integrity Violations

Students who accept an in violation outcome for the charges and sanctions are unable to appeal.

For cases referred to the Academic Integrity Council, either respondents or complainants may submit an appeal to the outcome or sanction on one of the following grounds:

  • There is new and relevant information that was unavailable, with reasonable diligence and effort, that could materially affect the outcome
  • There is evidence of bias in the Hearing procedures

An intention to appeal must be submitted in writing to the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities within three working days after notification of the outcome of the hearing.

A petition of appeal must be filed in writing within five working days of the declaration of intention.

Appeals are reviewed by the President of the University or a designee. The President or designee will make a final decision on the appeal based on the petition and reports of the Hearing Panel and the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.
