Appealing a Penalty
Disagreeing with an academic misconduct or penalty
If you do not agree to the academic misconduct and/or resolution you've received, you may indicate this at your resolution meeting with the department head, and on the Notice of Disciplinary Action form. Refer to the Student Academic Misconduct Policy (70) for the full details. Below is the process for appealing an academic misconduct decision:
Requesting an appeal
After you have received the decision of the dean or designate, you have the right to request an appeal of the validity of the complaint and/or the penalty within 14 UFV business days of receiving the decision. To learn next steps, contact the appeals assistant in the Office of the Registrar. The process is outlined in point 7 of the Academic Misconduct policy (70).
Note: Where there is a perceived difference between the meaning or intent of the steps found on our website and the Academic Misconduct Policy, the wording of the Academic Misconduct policy will apply.
