A student-athlete may appeal the finding of a positive result, violation of this policy, or the sanction imposed for either a positive test or violation of this policy. To appeal, the student-athlete must provide written evidence of a material procedural error, evidence that refutes the positive finding or violation, or evidence that the sanction is unreasonable. The student-athlete must submit the written appeal to the senior vice president for Educational Outreach and Student Services via the senior associate athletic director within seven days after the student-athlete is notified of the decision to be appealed. If the student-athlete does not appeal within seven days, the result, finding, or sanction cannot later be reviewed.
If the student-athlete is not contesting the positive result or the finding of a policy violation but wishes to appeal a sanction of suspension or cancellation of financial aid, the student-athlete should follow the hearing procedures for suspension or cancellation of athletic aid.
The decision of a team physician to suspend a student-athlete from play or practice on medical grounds is not a sanction and cannot be appealed under this policy.
