Requesting a Review

Office of Community Standards

Request for Review to the Student Conduct Committee Form

 

Students may request a review of any and all findings and decisions by the conduct officer.

 

Requests for a review must be received in the Office of Community Standards within seven (7) calendar days after receipt of the conduct officer’s decision on the case.  Once a Request for a Review is received a hearing will be scheduled with the Student Conduct Committee.  The student requesting a review will be notified of the hearing date, time and location of the hearing along with other information that will help him/her prepare for the hearing.  At the review hearing, the student Conduct Committee will hear from the Conduct Officer, the Student, and any necessary Witnesses to decide either to uphold, over turn, or modify the decision of the Conduct Officer.

 

Please complete all sections of the form and type a detailed rationale for why you are requesting a review.  The form must be turned in within seven (7) calendar days of receiving the Conduct Officer’s decision.  You mail e-mail the form to jpufhal@usm.maine.edu, fax the form to 780-5958, or drop it off at 125 Upton Hall on the Gorham Campus.  If you e-mail or fax the form and you have not heard back from us within two business days that we have received it, please call 780-5242 to confirm that we have the form.
