Community Standards Office
When a student allegedly violates a Housing and Residence Life policy, the matter is forwarded to the Community Standards Office, which will determine the respective follow up with the student. A member from the Community Standards Office will meet with the student to discuss alleged violations that are non separable offenses.
Non Separable Offenses
A violation of the policy is considered a non-separable offense when the possible sanction for the behavior/action will not result in possible dismissal from the University. The student will meet with a member of the Community Standards Office to discuss the matter and determine if the student is responsible for the alleged violation.
Office of Student Conduct
When the alleged violation(s) could be a separable offense and/or violation of the Code of Student Conduct, the Community Standards Office will refer the student to the Office of Student Conduct for either a Disciplinary Conference or University Hearing.
A violation of the policy is considered a separable offense when the possible sanction for the behavior/action could result in the dismissal of the student from the University. A violation will be determined if it is separable based on the severity and/or frequency of the alleged conduct.
