Student Code of Conduct
Student Conduct Process
During any Student Code of Conduct process, students will be provided with the following:
- Notice of the allegation(s) being made.
- Notice of the date of hearing or other process.
- The opportunity to be heard.
- The opportunity to have an advisor of their choice present during any stage of the conduct proceedings.
- Notice of the outcome as permitted by FERPA and any other applicable privacy laws.
- The opportunity to have the outcome reviewed through the appropriate appeals process.
You may also receive notice from the Resolution Center for Student Conduct and Conflict to participate in an investigative meeting.
If you are responsible for a violation of policy, your conduct officer(s) will assign outcomes. The nature and circumstance of the violation, your prior conduct history (if any), the impact of the misconduct on the community, and conduct outcomes assigned to previous findings for such violations, will be among the factors your conduct office will consider.
Outcomes may include reflection assignments, workshops and classes, administrative outcomes such as fines and warnings, restrictions, or outcomes related to academic degree progress such as suspension or expulsion.
Student Conduct Records
Possibly. While we want to empower you to proactively talk to you family about your college experience, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act permits a college or university to inform parents of students under the age of 21 if the student has violated any law or policy concerning the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance. Our staff is available to help you identify ways you can talk with your family about what happened.
