Carnegie Mellon University

For Undergraduate Students

If you dispute that your actions violated the University Policy on Academic Integrity, the university has a formal appeal process in place that provides you with the ability to have your case heard before an Academic Review Board. The process will be coordinated by the Office of Community Standards & Integrity and will be discussed in your follow-up meeting with a member of the Office of Community Standards & Integrity staff. The initial step of that process is writing a letter to the Dean of Student Affairs requesting an appeal and you can find more information in the Student Appeals section of the Undergraduate Academic Disciplinary Actions Overview.  Please note that requests for appeal are not granted automatically and the Dean of Student Affairs will determine whether the appeal will move forward to a second-level review.
