Intent of the Proposed Change

  • To give students an opportunity to appeal a student conduct determination if they were unable to participate in a process for reasons beyond their control.
  • To help students understand grounds to which they can appeal the outcome of a meeting.
  • To change and clarify language in order to help students better understand their rights.

    4. the decision is not supported by substantial information.
