Revised Hearing Guide:

We have revised the Hearing Guide to provide a fuller description of our hearing procedures. Students who have a hearing scheduled and students considering appealing an academic integrity charge should consult the new guide, which will be used at all future hearings. Download the revised Hearing Guide here.

Change in procedures for academic negligence cases:

Students charged with negligence now have the option to request that AIO reclassify the case as academic dishonesty in order to allow an appeal. This change addresses concern that students who believe they have not violated SU’s academic integrity expectations should have an opportunity to make this case. Further information for instructors is available here.
