An official warning that the student’s behavior is in violation of the UCF Rules of Conduct, and that if the student is subsequently found in violation of a rule while on disciplinary warning; subsequent action may be more severe.
Disciplinary probation status shall be for a specific length of time in which any further violation of the Rules of Conduct puts the student’s status with the University in jeopardy. If the student is found “in-violation” for another violation of the Rules of Conduct, while on disciplinary probation, more severe sanctions may be imposed such as suspension or expulsion. Restrictive conditions may be imposed and vary according to the severity of the offense. While on disciplinary probation, restrictive conditions may include, but may not be limited to the following: loss of good standing, which may become a matter of record; denial of the privilege to occupy a position of leadership or responsibility in any University student organization, publication, or activity, or ability to represent the University in an official capacity or position; trespass of University facilities or other areas of campus or contact with another specified person(s). Under disciplinary probation, the student may continue to attend classes and is given a chance to show capability and willingness to live in accordance with University rules. However, if the student is subsequently found in violation of a rule while on disciplinary probation, the University may suspend or expel the student from the University. While on Disciplinary Probation, a hold will be placed on a student’s record for record keeping purposes.
A student involved in an offense warranting consideration of action more serious than disciplinary probation or one involved in repeated misconduct may face suspension. During the period of suspension, a student may not be enrolled in classes, participate in University related activities, whether they occur on or off campus. A student under disciplinary suspension may not otherwise be present on University premises unless authorized in writing in advance under conditions approved by the Director of the OSC. In determining if and to what extent suspended students shall be authorized to be on University premises, the Director of the OSC or designee shall consider whether the suspension creates an undue hardship on the suspended student in regard to considerations that include, but are not limited to, the medical needs of the student. An overlay will be placed on a student’s record during the period of suspension. Further, while on disciplinary suspension, a hold will be placed on a student’s record for record keeping purposes. All assigned educational sanctions must be completed prior to the conclusion of disciplinary suspension; otherwise the disciplinary suspension will remain in effect.
Expulsion is a sanction which removes the student from his/her academic program and permanently separates a student from the University of Central Florida without opportunity to graduate or re-enroll at the university in the future. An overlay will be permanently placed on the student’s record. Further, a hold will be permanently placed on a student’s record for record keeping purposes.
In conjunction with a sanction listed above, a student found to have been in violation of any of the Rules of Conduct will be assigned educational requirements such as, but not limited to, reflective/research papers, classes/seminars, community service, interviews, etc. If a student has any outstanding educational requirements at the conclusion of disciplinary probation or suspension, a student’s disciplinary probation or suspension status and hold will remain in effect pending the completion of the educational requirements.
