College Policies
Step 4: Appeal to the President
  1. The student may appeal to the College President. Such appeals shall be in writing and postmarked within five (5) days* of the delivery of the decision to the student.

  2. The College President shall provide the student with a hearing, if requested, and shall review the appeal. The appeal shall be limited to a review of supporting documents and based only on the following:

    • Due Process: To determine whether the Grievance Committee was conducted fairly in light of the charges and information presented, and in conformity with prescribed procedures giving the complaining party a reasonable opportunity to prepare and to present information and that all parties were given a reasonable opportunity to prepare and to present a response to those allegations. Deviations from designated procedures will not be a basis for sustaining an appeal unless significant prejudice results.

    • New Information: To consider new information, sufficient to alter a decision, or other relevant facts not brought out in the original hearing, because such information and/or facts were not known to the person appealing at the time of the original Grievance Committee.

  3. A written notice of the President's decision shall be provided to the student within ten (10) days* of the hearing.
