Disciplinary Work Flow

1.    Notification

  • A student will receive a letter informing you that a judicial charge has been brought against that student.
  • The student must then schedule an appointment with the Office of Judicial Affairs by the date indicated in the letter.

2.    The Appointment

  • A hearing officer will see the student to explain the charges.
  • A hearing officer will discuss the student's rights.
  • A hearing officer will explain all judicial procedures.
  • A hearing officer will hear any statement that student may wish to make.

3.    The Decision

  • The student will be informed of the decision regarding the charges.
  • If the student is found not responsible, the process ends here.
  • If the student is found responsible, a sanction will be assigned.
  • The student may then accept or reject the decision.

4.    The Options

  • If the student chooses to accept the decision, the process ends here.
  • If the student chooses to reject the decision, the case will then be referred to the University Judicial Council.

5.    The Judicial Council Hearing

  • The Judicial Council will, independently and without knowledge of the judicial officer's decision, determine the student's responsibility.
  • The sanction assigned by the council may be more, the same, or less severe than that assigned by the hearing officer.

6.    The Appeal Process

  • The student may appeal the decision of the judicial council. The appeal must be in writing and within three working days of the hearing.
