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 Panel, respondents 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 panel procedures

A petition of appeal must be filed in writing within five working days after the notification of the outcome of the panel.

Appeals are reviewed by the Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs of the University or a designee. The Provost or designee will make a final decision on the appeal based on the petition and reports of the AIP and the Dean of the school in which the violation occurred.
