Students found responsible for a violation of the Code may appeal. An appeal from any decision, either conference, administrative hearing or University conduct board, must be made in writing within five calendar days following the date the hearing outcome letter is sent to the student electronic mail account. Students may file one (1) appeal per case. In the event multiple students are involved in one case, each student pursuing an appeal must do so individually. Submitting an appeal does not guarantee a meeting with the administrator responsible for deciding the appeal outcome. For that reason, it is important all information for consideration be made clear in the written appeal.
Under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women’s Act, the complainant in cases of sexual violence have the identical rights as the charged student which includes the right to appeal.
