Students have 10 business days from the date on the ticket to submit an appeal.
If the ticket is not paid or appealed within 10 business days a hold will be placed on your account, which will result in your inability to register, receive transcripts or graduate until the ticket is paid.
To appeal a ticket, fill out the form below.
Appeals received while classes are in session will be referred to the SGA. Appeals received while classes are not in session will be referred to the Dean of Students or designee.
The student appealing the ticket will be contacted by the Chief Justice of SGA to set up their appeal hearing. A student can waive the hearing and the Student Hearing Board will use the appeal form and make the decision based on that alone. If the student chooses to appear before the Student Hearing Board (made up of students elected to SGA and appointed by the President of SGA), the Chief Justice will set up the hearing date.
Fines will not increase, nor holds put on accounts while a ticket is in the appeal process. If the ticket is upheld, the student has 10 days from the date contacted to pay the ticket or a hold will be placed on the student's account.
If an appeal is submitted after a hold is placed on an account, the hold will remain until the ticket is either paid or dismissed.
All appeals are reviewed by the Student Hearing Board or the Dean of Students/designee and all decisions are final.
Students will be notified of the appeal decision through their TxWes email.
