Frequently Asked Questions

Is the judgment of ACJC in discipline cases final?

ACJC’s finding of ‘responsible’ or not ‘responsible’ is final upon expiration of the appeal period. According to the Student Conduct Standards, an appeal can be made on the any of the following grounds:

  • To review the sanction in order to determine whether it was appropriate
  • To consider information sufficient to alter the decision that was not brought out at the disciplinary hearing
  • To determine whether errors substantive enough to affect the decision were made during the hearing.
  • ACJC’s recommendation for sanctions is almost always accepted in full by the Office of the Dean of Students, but may be modified if deemed necessary. In some instances council recommended sanctions are not feasible and similar sanctions are replaced by the Dean of Students.

Can I choose ACJC for Academic Honesty or Sexual Assault and Discrimination cases?

No. Both of these types of cases have special hearing panels. However, one member of ACJC serves on the four-member Academic Honesty panel, and upon request by both parties, two members of ACJC (one male, one female) may serve on the Sexual Assault and Discrimination panel. Responsible Plea Panels are also not available for these types of cases.
