University Disciplinary Sanctions

Posted on Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

The following sanctions may be imposed upon any student found to have violated the student conduct code

  • Warning – A notice in writing to the student that the student is violating or has violated the Student Conduct Code.

  • Probation – A written reprimand for a designated period of time. If a student has a subsequent policy violation during the probationary period, it is likely that more severe sanctions will be issues for that offense.

  • Loss of Privileges for a designated period of time (e.g. participation in extracurricular activities, use of a particular facility, the ability to host guests in University housing).

  • Fines

  • Financial Restitution for loss, damage, or injury.

  • Discretionary Sanctions, such as unpaid volunteer work, essays, counseling or substance abuse education, evaluation, and/or treatment at the student’s expense.

  • Delayed Registration – A student may be required to delay his/her course registration until a complainant or any other student(s) involved in a conduct matter has completed course registration. Delayed registration is for a specified number of semesters or may be required until the complainant or other involved student(s) graduate.

  • Residence System and/or Dining Facility Suspension for a specified period of time.

  • Residence System and/or Dining Facility Expulsion (i.e. permanent separation).

  • No Contact or No Trespass Notices – issued to help assure that a member(s) of the University community is not subject to harassment or contact with the accused student/person found in violation of the student conduct code.

  • University Suspension – Separation of the student from the University for a specified period of time, after which conditions for readmission may also be specified.

  • University Expulsion – Permanent separation of the student from the University.

  • Revocation of Admission and/or Degree.

  • Withholding Degree – The University may withhold awarding a degree otherwise earned until the completion of the hearing process set forth in the Conduct Code, including the completion of any imposed sanctions imposed.
