(1) Reviews.

(a) The Student Conduct Committee, Greek Conduct Committee and the Health

Science Center Student Conduct Committee make a recommendation to the Dean of Students or

Committee makes a recommendation to the Review Board, as defined in Regulation 6C 1-4.0434,

concerning a decision and sanctions to be imposed, if any.

(b) If the Dean of Students or designee determines that a decision was not based upon

evidence presented to the hearing body, or the decision did not comply with the requirements of

law or applicable University regulations, the decision may be rejected and/or the case may be re-

heard. The Dean of Students or designee will state the reasons for the rejection of the decision.

In any case, the Dean of Students or designee may accept, modify or reject the recommended

sanction. The Dean of Students or designee must state the reasons for any modification or

rejection of the recommended sanction.

(c) The Dean of Students or designee may reject his or her prior decision or sanctions

and may reopen the case for further proceedings in the following circumstances:

1. The Dean of Students or designee is subsequently presented with information,

testimony, facts or other evidence from a criminal or civil proceeding relevant to the University

proceeding and/or decision made by the Dean of Students or designee based on the university

proceeding; and









2. This information, testimony, facts or other evidence was not available to the

University at the time of the University proceeding.

Decisions or sanctions imposed under the Student Conduct Code shall not be rejected

solely on the basis of an adjudication of not guilty, an acquittal, a dismissal, a reduction of

charges or other finding in favor of the student in a criminal or civil proceeding.

(2) Appeals.

(a) Decisions made by the Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution or

designee may be appealed to the Dean of Students or designee. Decisions made by the

Coordinator of Residential Judicial Programs may be appealed to the Director of Student

Conduct and Conflict Resolution. Decisions made by the Dean of Students or designee, in cases

other than decisions resulting from an appeal to the Dean or designee from another hearing

authority, may be appealed to the Vice President for Student Affairs or designee.

(b) Appeals to the Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, Dean of

Students and the Vice President for Student Affairs (hereinafter "reviewing authority"), as set

forth above, must be filed in writing and filed with the reviewing authority within ten (10)

business days from the date of the decision letter. In addition, contact must be made with the

reviewing authority within ten (10) business days from the date of the decision letter for the

purpose of scheduling an appointment, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the student

and the reviewing authority. The actual appointment must be scheduled within ten (10) business

days of filing the appeal unless otherwise approved by the reviewing authority. If the student

2. new relevant material evidence or information has been provided that could not

have been discovered at the time of the hearing;

3. the information presented did not support the decision by a preponderance of the

evidence (more likely than not) standard; or

4. the sanctions) imposed were not appropriate for the violation.

(d) The decision on the appeal should be made within ten (10) business days

following the meeting with the student except in exceptional circumstances. The decision of the

appeal authority shall be final and no further appeals are allowed.

(3) Disciplinary sanctions which may result in limits being placed on extracurricular

activities and/or registration, will take effect immediately. However, once an appeal is

requested, the sanctions will be stayed and will not take effect until the appeal process has been

completed. If no appeal is requested, the final action with respect to the above will take effect

immediately.
