What kind of sanctions does a student receive if he or she is found responsible?

Dismissal is a permanent separation from the University. It is the most severe penalty that can be assessed by the University. The student is not eligible for readmission.

Suspension prohibits the student from registering for classes or from attending the University while the suspension is in effect. Suspension shall remain in effect for a specified period of time, not to exceed two (II) calendar years from the time of a decision by a student conduct entity. At the end of the specified period the student may apply for re-enrollment via the Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs or his/her designee. A suspension may provide for automatic reinstatement of an otherwise eligible student.

Deferred Suspension shall be imposed for time periods similar to that for suspension. During this period a student found responsible of a rule violation by the student code of conduct proceeding may be subject to immediate Interim Suspension from the University. A student under the sanction of Deferred Suspension shall not represent the University as an official delegate, representative, athlete, or as a holder of office or committee chair in University groups of any kind.

Disciplinary Probation is a conditional continuance of registration at the University. It is a period when actions of the student are subject to particular scrutiny and when conduct violations will cause student conduct entities to consider current violations within the context of and with prejudice based on past violations. Previous violations shall not be considered in the determination of responsible for any new violation, but shall be considered in determining a sanction after responsibility has been established. Further misconduct during each probationary period may result in Suspension or Dismissal. At the discretion of the student conduct entity imposing probation, a student on Disciplinary Probation may lose the right to represent the University as an official delegate, representative, athlete, or as a holder of office or committee chair in University student groups of any kind. Probation shall be imposed for time periods similar to that for Suspension. Probation may be imposed together with such lesser sanctions as may be deemed appropriate

Loss of Privilege allows a student conduct entity to restrict the activity of the student while he/she is on the University campus. The student may be prohibited from participating in non-academic or extra-curricular activities and/or from visiting certain specified areas of the University campus and/or from coming into contact with specified individuals while on campus. Loss of Privilege should be related to the offense, or serve to correct the result of the offense, or compensate in some relevant way the offended party(ies). Loss of Privilege may accompany another sanction herein described. In matters pertaining to the University Residences, Loss of Privilege may include but is not limited to the following:

Removal from Housing prohibits the student from residing in University Housing either for a period of 1-2 years or permanently.  

Deferred Removal from Housing shall be imposed for a period of 1-2 years.  During this period a student found responsible of a rule violation by the student code of conduct proceeding may be subject to immediate suspension from University Housing. A student under the sanction of Deferred Removal from Housing shall not represent the University Housing as an official delegate, representative, athlete, or as a holder of office or committee chair in University Housing groups of any kind.

Work Requirement permits a student conduct entity to recommend and specify certain work requirements or duty obligations when such assignments are related to the offense, serve to correct the result of the offense, or compensate in some relevant way the offended party(s). Work Requirement may accompany another sanction herein described.

Restitution is action taken by a student conduct entity requiring a student to make compensation for loss, damage, or injury the student may have caused. Restitution may accompany another sanction herein described.

Warning by a student conduct entity, normally in writing, is intended to make the student aware of the possible consequences of his/her actions. This sanction may be considered with prejudice by a student conduct entity in future action only when the Warning is presented to the student in writing. This sanction shall be for any time period specified and shall remain a part of the student’s record until graduation or termination of his/her association with the University, at which time the notations shall be removed.

No contact with a specific student, faculty, staff, or community ember, where all direct or indirect (via a third party on his/her behalf and with his/her knowledge) verbal, physical, and electronic forms of contact are prohibited.

Administrative Reassignment within Housing and Residential Life to another room or apartment.

Fees or fines may be assessed for specific alcohol, drug, or incidents involving a physical altercation, as well as in matters where an assessment of damages has occurred.
