How does a hearing officer determine if a student is responsible or not responsible for violations of The Citizen?
A hearing officer and hearing panel uses a standard called “preponderance of the evidence.” This means. a hearing officer or hearing panel must determine that it is more likely than not that an alleged violation of The Citizen occurred.
What happens if I do not complete my assigned educational sanctions?
You will be assessed a fine and an adverse event will be noted in your disciplinary file until the sanction is complete.

Will anyone ever request to see my conduct record?
The office processes dean’s certification requests which are required of some professional schools (law, medicine, pharmacy, etc), graduate schools, undergraduate schools for transferring students, and/or other academic programs such as study abroad.
