When someone refers a student to our office for an alleged violation of the Code of Student Conduct, we will email the student notifying them of the referral.
What Happens Next?
The Associate Dean will schedule a meeting with you to go over the report and information gathered from an investigation.
We will discuss whether the issue can be resolved informally through a resolution agreement or formally through a student conduct hearing.

What to Expect at a Conduct Hearing
The Associate Dean will make an opening statement. Both you and the Associate Dean can present evidence and witnesses before a Hearing Officer.
Once all witnesses have been called, the Associate Dean will make a closing statement.
The Hearing Officer will submit a report to the Vice President for Student Life outlining what happened at the hearing, whether a violation occurred and, if so, recommended sanctions.
