If a student is found responsible for violating the Board of Regents Student Conduct Code they are subject to consequences which the student conduct code refers to as sanctions
Sanctions are determined based on a range of factors including, what the student did, who it affected and how the student can best learn from the experience.
If an informal meeting between an OCS staff member and the student is required, possible sanctions will be discussed at that meeting. If a meeting is not required, sanctions will be outlined in an email that is sent to the student.
If a student disagrees with the sanctions offered, the disciplinary process allows an opportunity for a student to request further review.
Our office takes a developmental approach to working with students and determining sanctions. This approach encourages students to develop skills and characteristics for success at the University and beyond.
Safety of the Community
The University seeks a community that is free from violence, threats and intimidation. If misconduct threatens the safety and well being of the community, separation from the University through suspension or expulsion may be applied.
