Sanctions and Conduct Resolution

student studying

We understand that people make mistakes in college, but sometimes those mistakes violate the policies we have on campus and result in sanctions. Sanctions and other forms of conduct resolution seek to first, help students repair harm they may have caused, second, make sure that mistake isn't made again, and third, reorient students' focus back on their academics. You should expect that any action taken as a result of misconduct serves an educational purpose.

If you are found responsible for a violation of the Code of Conduct, Student Conduct or your faculty may impose resolutions or sanctions relevant to the misconduct. In more serious cases, where the safety or wellbeing of the campus community, students may be asked to leave campus immediately until a final solution is reached.

A complete list of sanctions for both academic misconduct and general misconduct can be found in the Sanctions section of the Student Code of Conduct (pdf).

Types of conduct resolution include:

  • Informal resolution
  • Restorative justice measures, such as mediation
  • Faculty-student resolution
  • Formal sanctions, such as:
    • Warning
    • Probation
    • Grade Reduction
    • Failing Grade
    • Loss of privileges
    • Fines
    • Restitution
    • Personal development or service assignments
    • Suspension
    • Expulsion
