Appeals of Academic Integrity Violations


A student found responsible by their instructor for act(s) of academic misconduct may seek a review by the Chair of the Department. A request for such a review must be submitted (in writing) within five (5) business days of receipt of notice of the instructor’s decision. During this review, the student and instructor will present information to support their case. After reviewing the material presented by the instructor and the student, the Chair may:

(a)   Uphold the action taken by the instructor, or

(b)   Modify the action taken by the instructor.

Following this review, the student may request an appeal of the decision of the Department Chair by submitting a letter of appeal (in writing) to the Academic Integrity Committee within five (5) business days of the Department Chair’s review meeting. The Office of Student Conduct will then schedule an appeal hearing before the Academic Integrity Committee.

In cases where the faculty member has deferred disciplinary action to the Academic Integrity Committee, a student may appeal the original jurisdiction decision of the Academic Integrity Committee by submitting a letter of appeal (in writing) to the University Committee on Student Conduct within five (5) business days of being notified of the Academic Integrity Committee’s decision.   The Office of Student Conduct will then schedule an appeal hearing before the University Committee on Student Conduct.

A student may appeal a grade assignment for course work not associated with a finding of academic misconduct (as distinct from a student disciplinary sanction) through the appropriate University grade appeal procedures.
