A student may appeal the decision or the sanction(s), condition(s) and restriction(s) imposed by the Office of Student Conduct by submitting a written petition to the VPSEES office within five (5) University working days of receiving the written decision. The petition can be submitted using this link:

Conduct, Title IX, Disability, Discrimination Appeal form

The petition must clearly set forth the grounds for the appeal, together with the evidence upon which the appeal is based. A disagreement with the decision alone shall not constitute grounds for appeal. The only proper grounds for appeal, and the only issues that may be considered on appeal are as follows:

  • A procedural [or substantive error] occurred that significantly impacted the outcome of the hearing (e.g. substantiated bias, material deviation from established procedures, etc.);
  • The discovery of new evidence, unavailable during the original hearing or review of the case, which could substantially impact the original finding or sanction. A summary of this new evidence and its potential impact must be included; and
  • The sanctions imposed substantially vary from the range of sanctions normally imposed for similar infractions.

The VPSEES office has ten (10) University working days to make a decision on the appeal.
