A substantial violation of a student's rights may be appealed in accordance with the following procedure:

  1. If the matter is a disciplinary problem, the concerned student should request an individual conference with the staff member involved to clarify and remedy the specific violation. If the matter is not resolved, the student may request a conference with the appropriate supervisor. If the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, the student may request a hearing with the Student Disciplinary Committee. The Student Disciplinary Committee is an Ad-Hoc Committee consisting of two faculty members, two student representatives and a professional from the Advising Center. The student must present a written appeal to the Student Disciplinary Committee which sets forth the reasons for the appeal. The student will be afforded an opportunity to state the appeal informally, or present information in support of the appeal, including mitigating circumstances. If the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, the student or staff member may request a conference with the Vice President for Student Affairs.
  1. If the matter is an academic problem, speak with the instructor. If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved, speak with the Dean or Assistant Vice President for the appropriate division. If the problem remains unresolved to the satisfaction of both parties, the student may request a hearing with the Academic Standards Committee. The Academic Standards Committee is comprised of the following representatives: 3 Faculty, 2 Professional Staff, 2 Support Staff, 1 Academic Advisor, and 1 Dean. The Director of Admissions & Records serves on this committee as a non-voting member and recorder. The student may add information to their previously submitted appeal if desired, so that it identifies the rights allegedly violated, specific circumstances and evidence of violations. The student will be afforded an opportunity to state the appeal informally, or present information in support of the appeal, including mitigating circumstances. If the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, the student may request a conference with the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

 

Appeal Process

  • Student must fill out and submit the Petition Form and provide appropriate documentation of support to the office of Admissions & Records. The Appeal Form may be located online on the Admissions & Records homepage or by visiting this office.
  • The faculty member, course or division in question will be notified by the Academic Standards Committee (ASC) of such petition no later than 10 calendar days (excluding holidays) from initial received date of petition. In this notification, the faculty member will have the opportunity to review documentation from the student. The faculty member must notify the Admissions & Records Director within 10 calendar days (excluding holidays) if they wish to review documentation or waive their right to review. If reviewed, they will present the proper documentation in writing pertaining to the student's appeal within 10 calendar days (excluding holidays).
  • Documentation received will only be reviewed when submitted by student and/or faculty member in question. On the rare occasion when clarification may be necessary, verbal communication may only be given at the request of the ASC.
  • The student may review documentation provided by the faculty member and add information that identifies the rights allegedly violated, specific circumstances and evidence of violations no more than 10 calendar days (excluding holidays) after the faculty member has submitted their responses. No further submissions will be allowed from either party at this time. Recommendations from the ASC will be sent directly to the student, faculty member and Provost for Academic & Student Affairs. The student may request a conference with the Provost for Academic & Student Affairs if the matter is not resolved to their satisfaction after the ASC has made their recommendations within 10 calendar days (excluding holidays) of written notification.
