Frequently Asked Questions

What is a non-disciplinary record?

A non-disciplinary record is an information only file in the Office for Community Standards. The information would not be reported to someone conducting a disciplinary background check. 

Is there a record of scholastic dishonesty on my transcript?

Disciplinary (and non-disciplinary) records are separate from the academic transcript unless a case has resulted in suspension or expulsion, in which case a memo is placed on the student's transcript. 

How do I repond to questions on an application regarding scholastic dishonesty? 

It depends on the question. You should be forthcoming with information. In many cases resolved through AIM you can say "I had an incident that resulted in a non-disciplinary record". If you ever have any questions regarding this, please contact the Office for Community Standards. 

If I decide I want to go to a hearing, can I do so after attending AIM?

No, students who elect to attend AIM accept resonsiblity for violating the Student Conduct Code
