Appeals Process

Submitted by admin on Thu, 07/18/2019 - 12:43

Concerns about any aspect of the student experience should be addressed through the AVTEC resolution process.

Students may file a formal appeal to a disciplinary action within two (2) business days of the date of receipt of the notice of discipline based on one or more of the following grounds:

  • To provide new or additional information regarding the disciplinary action
  • To correct information stated in the disciplinary action that would impact the decision
  • To appeal the disciplinary action because it does not follow the policies as outlined in the AVTEC Student Handbook

The counseling staff can assist students with the appeal process as follows:

  • Student receives the appeals form from a counselor.
  • Student completes the appeals form and returns it to the counselor, who submits to the Director or their designee. 
  • Student and counselor are notified of the time and place for the hearing of the appeal. 
  • Student is notified of the decision of their appeal in writing within 24 hours of the appeal hearing date; this notice, with any terms and conditions for the student to return, will become part of the student’s permanent record.
