Hearings and Appeals
A formal hearing is an opportunity for further review of a student conduct incident. The informal resolution does not go into effect if a hearing is requested. An appeal of a hearing decision is a request for further review based on an alleged error in the hearing process
Why would a hearing occur?
If a student does not accept the informal resolution offered by OCS, they may request that a hearing board review the issue further.
When would a student request a hearing?
The opportunity to request a hearing is typically after the student has received a letter from OCS offering an informal resolution to the incident. Often, the letter is sent to the student after they have already had an informal meeting with OCS.
How does a student request a hearing?
After a student receives a letter from OCS offering an informal resolution, they may request a hearing by responding via email indicating that they do not accept the informal resolution and would like a hearing.
