The Student Conduct Process

Violations of community standards by students are responded to by designated staff members in the Division of Student Affairs through the student conduct process. The following forums exist for formal resolution of violations:

  • Administrative Resolution Meeting with a university adjudicator
  • University Disciplinary Committee (UDC)
  • Academic Review Board (ARB)
  • All Greek Community Standards Board

For incidents that pose immediate concerns for the safety and welfare of the campus community, during the pendency of university student conduct proceedings, the university may conduct a review per the Safety Intervention Protocol to determine whether it is necessary to take summary action or implement interim measures that limit a student's ability to be present on campus, engage in coursework, and/or interact with specific members of the university community until resolution is reached.

Additionally, the dean of students or designee may direct that a degree not be certified by the university registrar and therefore not awarded pending the resolution of university student conduct proceedings, including completion of all outcomes.
