points to consider when filing an appeal
- Only a first
violation can be appealed.
- An appeal must
be made on the following grounds:
- Violation did
sanction is excessive/inappropriate
- The deadline for
appealing is the end of the 5th week of the quarter following the quarter
in which the violation occurred (this excludes Summer session; a violation
that occurred in Spring or Summer can be appealed until the 5th week of the Autumn)
- If you do not attend
your appeal hearing your case may not be heard and the instructor’s
sanction will stand.
How to file
must file your appeal through the "For Students" section on Campus
Connect. Click on the link "Appeal Academic Integrity
Violation" and follow the instructions.
- You will need to
present your appeal at an AIB appeal hearing. The instructor who
issued the violation will also be present.
- No further
penalty will be applied to the student as the result of an appeal hearing.
- If you have
already been informed that you are subject to a mandatory hearing, you do
not need to file an appeal. You will have ample opportunity at the
hearing to present your perspective on the violation and the Board will
review the case on its merits to determine whether a violation occurred
before reviewing the sanction.
- Contact a
Student Consultant if you need further clarification about the appeal or
