A student’s status regarding conduct is regulated by the following definitions:
This status indicates that a student has been duly enrolled in the University and is eligible to participate in all activities of the University. A student is presumed to be in good standing unless the student forfeits that status by established misconduct.
This status indicates that a student has been notified through email or letter communication from a staff member identifying an issue or concern that can be remedied by informing or reminding the student of the university’s rules and expectations. Students who receive warning notifications are not charged with any violations, but they are cautioned that further behavior of the same or similar type will be subject to violations of the Student Code of Conduct which may result in formal sanctions by the University.
This status indicates that a student’s behavior has raised serious questions concerning the student’s status as a resident. The student will be given a stated period during which his/her conduct will establish whether he/she is to be returned to good standing by having met definite requirements in behavior or whether he/she is to be dismissed from University housing.
Suspension from Housing
This status indicates the involuntary separation of the student from University housing and/or that the student’s university housing contract has been terminated for a specific period of time. During the period of suspension, the suspended student will not be allowed on any of the University housing facilities.
Expulsion from Housing
This status indicates a permanent dismissal from housing, which prohibits the student from living or being a guest in any university or campus housing. The student is required to pay room and board for the remainder of the semester in which the dismissal takes effect.
This status indicates that the student's behavior has raised serious questions concerning the student's status as a member of the University community. The student will be given a stated period during which his/her conduct will establish whether he/she is to be returned to good standing by demonstrating that he/she will not engage in further violations and by having met all educational probationary requirements. The sanction of University Probation may be imposed on a student by the conduct review process, or by the Dean of Students/Associate Dean of Students or his/her designee.
Parents of students placed on disciplinary probation may be notified by the Dean of Student/Assistant Dean of Students or his/her designee.
If while on disciplinary probation a student is found responsible for a further infraction of University policies/regulations and/or the Student Code of Conduct, the student will be subject to the possibility of suspension/expulsion from the University and/or University housing.
Interim University Suspension

The interim suspension takes place when the continued presence of a person constitutes a danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the University community or University property. At the time a student is interim suspended, the individual affected shall be informed of a right to a conduct meeting without undue delay. The student shall remain dismissed until the completion of the conduct review process at which time the student’s status will be determined. During this period, the student is not allowed on campus or any University property (owned, leased, or managed) nor any university event.

The status of suspension indicates an involuntary separation of the student from the University for a stated time due to serious or repeated violations of the Student Code of Conduct and/or any stated University policy and/or for undesirable conduct on the part of the student.
