Student Appeals Court
The Student Appeals Court works in conjunction with the Office of Residence Life and the Office of Community Life to promote a Liberty University community that adheres to the mission and purpose of the University and promote fairness and consistency in the interpretation of the Liberty Way.
The Student Appeals Court hears discipline appeals regarding violations against the Student Code of Honor (the Liberty Way). The Student Appeals Court does not administer discipline nor does it replace the roles of Resident Assistants, Resident Directors or Associate Directors of Community Life.
The Student Appeals Court does not re-hear a case to find a student “responsible” or “not responsible.” Instead, the Student Appeals Court grants disciplinary appeals based on at least one of the following:
- The Liberty University representative who issued discipline (RA, RD or Associate Director) did not follow the policies and procedures outlined in the Liberty Way
- New evidence is introduced into the case
- The disciplinary sanctions are not fair and consistent with the violation
The Student Appeals Court meets on Mondays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Student Appeals Court will not be held during Finals week or throughout University breaks (i.e. fall break, winter break, etc.).
