Appeal/ Sanction Reduction Request

Students and Student Organizations who resolve an incident through the Student Conduct Code and/or Student Adjudication Model for Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Cases may have the right to submit a Sanction Reduction Request and/or Appeal of the Findings using our online form below by logging in via Single Sign On.

Appeals/Sanction Reduction Requests under the Student Conduct Code:

Students and Student Organizations who receive sanctions from an Administrative Resolution meeting where they accepted responsibility have the right to submit a Sanction Reduction Request within ten business days of the date of their resolution letter. Failure to make and/or attend your Administrative Resolution Meeting after a second notice is viewed as an admission of responsibility, and the Student Conduct Officer will determine responsibility and sanctions without the benefit of your input, using the information available to them.

Students or Student Organizations found responsible at a Student Conduct Review and assigned sanctions, may Appeal the Finding(s) of responsibility and/or submit a Sanction Reduction Request within ten business days of the date of their resolution letter.

Appeals and Sanction Reduction Requests will be reviewed and decided upon by:

  • The Council of Provosts for undergraduate students.
  • The Dean of the Graduate Division for graduate students.
  • The AVC-Student Life for student organizations.
