RESIDENCE LIFE APPEAL PROCEDURE

Procedure


RESIDENCE LIFE APPEAL PROCEDURE


The appeal procedure is a process that takes place in a college setting and is a community of individuals working together for the benefit of students.  Within this framework, the institution embodies the laws of the state and nation, but maintains the authority to govern itself.  Any resident who receives a College citation will, under due process, have the right to appeal to Residence Life Authorities.  Students wishing to appeal will be required to adhere to the following steps:

  1. Each student, within 1 business day of receiving a College citation, will submit a letter in writing to the Office of Residence Life stating his/her grounds for appeal.
  2. The Assistant Director will review the appeal and within 3 business days issue a written reply stating the outcome of the appeal.
  3. If the resident’s appeal is not overturned by the Assistant Director of Residence Life, the resident has the right to appeal to the Director of Residence Life within one business day.
  4. If the resident’s appeal is not overturned by the Director of Residence Life, the resident has the right to appeal to the Vice President of Student Services within 2 business days. The Vice President of Student Services will determine if the appeal has merit to be overturned.  The decision of the Vice President of Student Services is final and binding and serves as the final step in the appeal process.

As referenced in the Student Grievances Procedures, the role of the District President in these procedures is not to decide the case or appeal thereof, but merely to determine whether the administrative chain of command has adhered to Navarro College procedures.
