Code of Conduct Violations

  1. Academic Dishonesty
  2. Other Violations

Violations Review

Any member of the University community may take alleged violations of the Code of Conduct to the Vice President of Student Affairs. Allegations will be reviewed and a determination made as to whether there is a basis to believe that a violation of the Code of Conduct may have occurred. If it is deemed that no violation has occurred, the allegations are dismissed and the accused is so informed. If it is deemed that there is a basis to believe that a violation has occurred, the allegation is referred to the Student Discipline Committee.

The Vice President of Student Affairs may impose, at the discretion of that office, an immediate suspension of privileges pending the Student Discipline Committee hearing.

Allegations of Criminal Conduct

Any student accused of a felony, misdemeanor or DUI offense must report it to the Vice President of Student Affairs within seventy-two (72) hours of arrest or being charged.

The same rule applies to any charge, felony or misdemeanor, involving sexual conduct.

Students are required to report these matters irrespective of whether the charges arose from alleged conduct on or off a university site, and whether or not the alleged conduct occurred at a University sponsored event.

The Vice President of Student Affairs shall review the matter and the University shall determine, in its sole discretion whether to suspend or otherwise limit the student’s attendance and/or participation in classes and university sponsored activities.

The matter will then be referred to the Student Discipline Committee.
