Student Appeals Policy
In general, students who want to appeal an academic disciplinary action must state in writing to the dean their intention to do so within one week of the penalty date in question. The student then must present their appeal no later than two weeks after said penalty date. Appeals must be in writing, with appropriate documentation.
If the Teaching Director determines that a second-level review is warranted and that a Review Board should be convened, the dean or his/ her designee shall immediately form and convene a Review Board and designate a chair. If a student appeal and a review of a recommen- dation for second-level action occur at the same time, both shall be considered by this Review Board simultaneously. Where appropriate, it is expected that the instructor(s) from the course/project involved (or appropriate representatives designated by the department) will be available for participation or for consultation. The chair of the board shall inform the student(s) involved, in writing, of this step. Copies of this letter should go to:
• The instructor(s) in the course in question
The Review Board shall (a) review the facts of incidents involved and (b) make a recommendation about second-level action to the provost or his/her designee. The provost shall then render a decision subject only to appeal to the president of the school.
