Any student found responsible for a violation of code/policy by a hearing agent may appeal this decision. The appeal must specify whether the appeal is being made as a result of:
Appeals of decisions reached in Residential Programs & Services staff hearings:
Appeals of decisions reached in all other hearings:
In the case where a disciplinary hearing, regardless of the source, results in a Dismissal from the College sanction, and an appeal based on the severity of this sanction is sought, the appeal must be delivered to the Student Affairs Division Office. The Dismissal from the College sanction, however, may be applied only by the College President. Therefore, any appeal concerning the severity of Dismissal from the College will be considered by an appeal agent appointed by the Board of Trustees.
Note: In cases dealing with conduct falling under the Sexual Violence Policy, both the complainant and the responsible student may appeal the decision in accord with the requirements of Title IX. See the MCLA Sexual Violence Policy for additional information.
