The Student Elections Review Committee reserves the right to determine if a complaint shall be resolved through a hearing.

If there is a hearing of the charges made against a candidate(s), and upon presentation of evidence and a finding by the committee that a candidate(s) violated election procedures or college regulations governing student behavior, possible penalties for violations may include any of the following: warning, or disqualification of a candidate(s) from the election. In instances where the violations are severe or egregious, SERC can order a new election to be held and the offending candidate(s) will be prohibited from running in a new election. Further, the college may file disciplinary charges against a candidate(s) or their supporters.

The filing of frivolous or false allegations of campaign violations may subject the filer(s) to disciplinary action.

All appeals of SERC decisions shall be made to the President in writing within the rules under the applicable Board Bylaws.

In accordance with the CUNY Bylaws, the President's decision on appeal shall be final.
