Academic Integrity Reviews
Students accused of academic misconduct can have the allegation reviewed by the Academic Integrity Review Board (AIRB), a panel of faculty and students.
The board does not:
- Decide or change sanctions
- Dismiss cases based on your "character" or "intentions"
The board does:
- Review the allegation with the instructor and involved student(s). NOTE: if the allegation involves more than one student, all of the involved students may be present at the Review and your name will be disclosed to the other involved students (and you will receive their names).
- Use the evidence to determine whether it is "more likely than not" that a policy violation occurred
Should you ask for a review?
Do not ask for a review if you concur that:
- The policy violation occurred
- The policy violation occurred, but you want your mitigating circumstances considered
- The policy violation occurred, but you want your sanctions reduced
Ask for a review if:
- You are contesting that the action in question occurred.
Request a review
Submit your request for a review to your appropriate dean.
Once you are notified that the AI Office has received your review request, ask for a copy of the allegation documentation from the AI Office. You can also see information on preparing for a review.
