Appeals and Appeal Submission
Students whose cases have been resolved through the Honor System may be eligible to appeal their case outcome, depending on the original hearing type in which they participated. The Office of Student Conduct recognizes three grounds for appeal:
- Insufficiency of Evidence
- Violation of Basic Rights
- Severity of Sanctions
If a student feels that their case has been impacted by any of the aforementioned grounds, they may submit an appeal petition no later than five (5) business days after receiving the rationale of the Honor Court's decision. Appeal petitions are reviewed and granted on a case by case basis by the Judicial Programs Officer. Students submitting appeals should provide as much context and detail as possible related to the grounds for their appeal. Please see the appeal petition and the Instrument Appendix C, Section I: Appeals (pg. 42) for more information.
