Academic Misconduct

Appealing an Academic Dishonesty Charge

For complete information on the Academic Dishonesty Policy, please see the Fledgling for the entire policy.  Below are excerpts from that policy as they relate to appealing an Academic Dishonesty Charge, taken from Section III of the Academic Dishonesty Policy.

If the faculty member does not refer the case [sic to Justice Council] but the student wishes to appeal the grade penalty, the student may contact the Student Conduct Officer in the Office of Student Conduct.  The appeal must be made within 5 class days after being notified of the academic dishonesty charge to request that the case be reviewed by the Justice Council.
