Student's Procedural Rights

When a student or student organization representative appears for a student conduct conference before the Director of Student Conduct or before a University Student Conduct Officer(s), the following procedural rights will be accorded:
  • To receive a letter of notification with the date, time, and place of the student conduct conference.

  • To have a student conduct hearing that shall be scheduled no earlier than three (3) business days* after the date of the notice except in extenuating circumstances with approval from the Director of Student Conduct.

  • To have an advisor present during the student conduct conference; however, the advisor may not participate in presenting the case, question witnesses, or make statements during the conference.  The advisor may not act as legal counsel. An attorney may be present only if the student has been charged with a felony offense and/or the case is related to possible Title IX violations.

  • To receive written notification of the decision of the student conduct conference within ten (10) business days*, barring unforeseen circumstances.

  • To either accept responsibility for the violation(s) and the assigned sanction(s) or submit a written appeal to the Conduct Officer within three (3) business days from the date of receipt of the decision. A student may only appeal a sanction of Removal from University Housing or Suspension to Permanent Expulsion from the University.
