Possible Outcomes

Review the tabs below if you have received an alleged violation letter and would like information regarding the possible outcome of your conduct case.

It is important to note that each case referred to the Center is composed of unique circumstances. We therefore prefer to meet with students to hear their side of the story prior to deciding on an outcome.

The information provided below is to highlight possible outcomes for typical policy violations of the Code of Student Conduct and is not absolute; individual circumstances will be reviewed in detail before a decision is rendered.  Factors that will be considered when determining appropriate outcomes are previous conduct history, severity of the incident and the impact on the community.
