Student Appeals Board Process and Procedures

Residence Life Appeal

A student who has been sanctioned with dismissal from the Residence Halls by the Residence and Campus Life Director (or Designee), and the sanction has been upheld by the Vice President for Student Services (or Designee), may further appeal by writing a letter to the Student Appeals Board and delivering it to the Student Grievance Officer. This process must begin within two working days following the receipt of the official letter from the Vice President for Student Services (or Designee).

  • Your appeal letter should be typed and signed in ink, and include your full name, phone number and campus/local mailing address.
  • Include your justification, your side of the story – telling what happened at the time of the incident.
  • Be prepared to appear in person before the Student Appeals Board to present your case.
  • At the discretion of the Chair of the Student Appeals Board, additional witnesses may be requested to speak to the Board on your behalf. Legal counsel cannot represent either the Appellant or the Respondent at the hearing, nor can legal counsel be present at the hearing.
