Appeals

Students have the right to appeal any sanctions. Such an appeal must be made in writing, must specify the grounds for appeal, and be made within five days of receipt of the written decision. An appeal must be directed to the Vice President of Student Life & Dean Students who will either hear it, or appoint a judicial officer to do so. Grounds for appeal might include claims of procedural errors, new evidence, denial of rights, or inappropriately severe punishment. Should the Vice President of Student Life & Dean Students choose to grant an appeal, the case will be reviewed and a written decision will be conveyed to the student indicating whether the sanction[s] shall stand, be modified, or reversed.

Students who have been expelled may make a final appeal to the President of Kettering University.  Such an appeal must be made in writing, must specify the grounds for appeal, and be made within five days of receipt of the expulsion notice.  The President’s decision is final.
