Holds

A hold may be placed on a student's record for the following reasons:

Note: If a hold is placed on a student's record, the student will receive notification from the Office of Student Conduct about the hold, it's implications, and what steps they need to take to have the hold removed.

Failure to Schedule or Attend a Meeting

Once an incident is reported and reviewed by the Office of Student Conduct, an emailed Notice to Appear will be sent informing the student of the alleged violations of the Code of Conduct. The student has five (5) business days from the date of the email to schedule an initial meeting to learn about his/her rights and responsibilities, review the contents of the report, and to discuss the incident, if they choose. Failure to schedule and/or attend the scheduled meeting will result in a hold being placed on the student's record until he/she attends the meeting.

Failure to Complete Sanctions by an Assigned Deadline

After a student accepts responsibility for any alleged violation and agrees to sanctions, or is found responsible for the alleged violations of the Code of Conduct and is assigned sanctions after a formal hearing, failure to complete the sanctions by the deadline will result in a hold being placed on a student's account.

Interim Suspension

If a student has been placed on interim suspension, a hold will be placed on the student's record that will prevent a student from registering for or withdrawing from classes.

Suspension

When a student is suspended from the university, a hold is placed on the student's record which prevents a student from registering for classes. If a student is suspended, they will be withdrawn from any current classes by the Registrar, effective as of the date of the suspension. The hold will not be removed until the suspension timeline has run and a follow up meeting with a conduct officer has occurred.

Expulsion

If a student is expelled from the university, a permanent hold will be placed on the student's record.
