• The student will be informed of the decision via the student’s IW student email within five class days.
    • After the decision email has been sent, the student will have two class days to appeal the decision in writing (via email) to the Dean of Students.
    • Appeals must be based on the following criteria:
      • any irregularities in due process
      • new evidence not available at the time of the original meeting or hearing
      • a sanction that is extraordinarily disproportionate to the offense.
    • Within five class days the student will be notified via the student’s email of the disposition of the appeal.
    • If the appeal is granted a hearing will be scheduled in a timely manner.
    • The appellate individual or board, on a majority vote, may affirm, modify, reverse or remand the original decision, or order that a new hearing be held.
    • The decisions of the Dean of Students or the Committee on Student Development are final.

The University reserves the right to extend or shorten the specific time lines stated above in the interest of fairness or judicial efficacy.
