Student Rights & Responsibilities
The Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities typically addresses instances of significant or recidivistic non-academic student misconduct, which may result in a disciplinary record and sanctions that include, but are not limited to, cancellation of a student’s housing license agreement, suspension or expulsion from the university, or other educational sanctions.
These actions may be addressed in the following forums:
Appeals to non-academic disciplinary cases are reviewed in accordance with Article 33, Article 34, Article 35, and Article 36 of the "Code of Student Conduct" and if appropriate, are reviewed by the Committee on the Judicial System. Appeals must be based on new information that is relevant to the case, not presented by the hearing/conference, and that significantly alters the finding of fact.
The Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities also oversees the Office of Civility & Community Standards and the university’s academic disciplinary process that is administered by the Office of Academic Integrity.
