Administrative Hearing

Following the conduct review meeting and any additional investigation, the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities will inform the student of the finding and likely sanction if found responsible. If the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities determines that there is sufficient information to support a finding of responsibility by a preponderance of evidence, the student has the option of  being issued a finding and sanction through an Administrative Hearing or a Student Conduct Review Board hearing. Unless the student requests a full Student Conduct Review Board hearing, administrative hearings for violations that could result in recommended sanctions of probation, deferred suspension, suspension or dismissal will normally be conducted jointly by the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities and a student member of the Student Conduct Review Board. The option to include a member of the Student Conduct Review Board may be limited if the hearing must be held at a time when the Student Conduct Review Board members are not available (e.g. during breaks) and cannot be convened, in which case the right to an appeal may be exercised.
