Any person accused of academic misconduct who believes that the allegation was improperly reviewed, may appeal in writing to the provost.

Any appeal shall be delivered to the provost by the date that is 30 calendar days after the date of the dean’s notice to the respondent. Additional time may be provided by the provost in his or her discretion, and only upon prompt application and for compelling reasons.

In considering such an appeal, the provost will limit his or her review to determining whether appropriate procedures and standards were applied.
