      She stated that all colleges do not interpret the policy in the same

      manner and asked the commission that clarification be made on this is-

      sue.  Dr. Spencer cited examples where the appeals policy would be in-

      terpreted differently under the same appeals circumstance and the

      outcome would either benefit or penalize the student.  Elizabeth

      Guertin asked if it is fair to impose additional penalties on those

      students who do choose to appeal.  Leon Geyer asked that examples of

      different appeals situations and outcomes be drafted for the commission

      and return it to the commission for final clarification.
