Academic Dishonesty Appeals

Students who are charged with academic dishonesty have the opportunity to appeal the charge or the punishment based on PS 03.A.19 section 2.3. Like a grade appeal, the student's first option is to petition the instructor and then the chair of the relevant department (see table below). If the appeal is denied and the student still believes that s/he has a compelling case, s/he may bring the matter to the dean's office for final review.
