|If you have received a letter from your professor notifying you that you have violated the Academic Integrity Policy and if you have never received a notification letter before, you do not need to do anything in response to the letter.|
|Timing for filing an appeal|
If, however, you choose to appeal the violation, the policy requires that you file your appeal before the end of the fifth week of the quarter following the one in which the violation occurred.|
Note: If it is not your first offense, you will be contacted soon after you receive the letter by Academic Affairs regarding a mandatory hearing before the Academic Integrity Board.
|Filing an appeal|
If you do choose to appeal the violation to a panel of the Academic Integrity Board, you must do so via the online appeal process available through Campus Connection.|
Please click on the link "Appeal Academic Integrity Violation" under "For Students" and follow the instructions on the page that follows.
|Appeals for students subject to mandatory hearings|
|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 the opportunity at the hearing to present your perspective on the violation when the hearing panel reviews the case.|
|If you have questions|
|You may also consult with a student consultant as you consider the possibility of an appeal. Several faculty members have been appointed as student consultants to provide clarification on the policy or process and you may contact any of them. All questions you may have about appeal or the hearing procedures should be directed to a student consultant.|
